      You will need to supply pole material. Here is what I use to use in 1972 to make flagpoles in my welding shop.
Here is list. You can adjust sizes to suite yourself.
  • 1, a 2" pipe it will be 2 & 3/8" outside diameter (threaded if not welding)
  • a reducer to 2" to 1 & 1/2"
  • a length of 1 1/2" threaded pipe it will be about 2 1/8" outside.
  • a reducer to 1 1/2 to 1 1/4"
  • a length of 1 1/4" pipe threaded, it will be  1& 7/8" outside and our 2" truck top will fit it just fine.

   If you do not want to use threaded reducers that's fine these sizes will slip inside each other, allow a 1 ft over lap and weld joints, or drill through and bolt.

      The above list will produce a flagpole with over all length of 30 ft. If you bolt or weld pole together using 1 ft. over lap, then dig a 3' deep hole in ground  and concrete a 36" long piece of 4" PVC (plastic pipe) then install pole in the ground sleeve, this will give you a 25' tall finished height flagpole  See Flagpole Instructions here.
Optional , Installation Using A Pivot Base.   You could purchase 1 more length of  2" pipe, cut it in half, burry 30" in concrete in ground leaving both pc. stick up 30 above ground, drill matching 1/2" holes 1 " down from top and 3" up above ground, this would produce a pivot base and your flagpole could be installed so you could raise it up easily and lie it down when needed. See pivot sketch below. 2 - 5' long pipes, 2 - 1/2" bolts 8" long. drill two holes in your pipe flagpole. Use galvanized pipe, No paint No rust.  and this would yield a 30 ft flagpole). (note: you would want to drill all holes first use first drilled as template to match holes in pole, then using proper width spacer bole pivot base together , and install in hole and concrete in place making sure it is plumb. and bottom hole is above concrete finish by 3.5"  )

Flagpoles are easy to build and install if you are handy with a few simple tools or have some welding experience. (Welding Not Nessary) but does produce a stronger pole rather than using threaded pipe. You could also use a length of fencing pipe 2" but that material is very thin and will not produce a very strong flagpole, but would be fine for 1 3x5' flag.
