Flag Pole Lighting

While the Flag Code states it is customary to display the American flag only from sunrise to sunset, it also states that the flag may be displayed 24 hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. At Mike’s Landscape Lighting, we know our way around the flagpole!

Solar Flag Pole Lights

There are two different routes when lighting a flag. There is the in ground lighting, or solar powered flag pole lights. Solar powered lights are usually placed above the flag and look like a flying saucer, there are also the kind that claps to the pole underneath the flag. The saucer type has the advantage of being higher up and having solar panels on all sided of the pole, thus increasing the amount of sunlight received. It also looks less obtrusive during the day. The solar spotlight that clamps to the pole is great if you still want that classic flag lighting aesthetic without having to worry about wiring. However it can look more obtrusive during the day than the saucer type.

In Ground Flag Pole Lights

In Ground flag pole lighting is what is normally thought of when people imagine flag pole lighting. While more work to install, and do not use free power, they are more luminous and un obtrusive than solar lights. Commercial flag pole lights are normally this kind since commercial flags are often much bigger than what the average homeowner hangs up, which means they need more powerful lights.
