Flag Pole Lighting
Need help with 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 Lighting
Solar-powered lights are usually placed above the flag and look like a flying saucer, there is also the kind that clips to the pole underneath the flag. The saucer type has the advantage of being higher up and having solar panels on all sides 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 lights are what is normally thought of when people think about flag pole lights. While they are more work to install and do not use free power, they are more luminous and less obtrusive than solar lights. Commercial flags are often much bigger than what the average homeowner flies, which means they need more powerful lights. Thus, in-ground lights are the chosen option for most commercial customers.
