The Sentry Flagpole offers an internal halyard system. The key difference is the nylon rope is inside the pole, only accessible by a reinforced access panel. This is great at preventing theft or vandalism to the flag so you can display a flag without the worry of something happening to it. Park Tables has American flags for sale but a state flag would look great at a state park or university! Included with each order are a gold anodized aluminum ball topper, chrome retainers for a single flag, and an internal halyard along with the 20 foot pole itself. The pole is mounted 3 feet in-ground with 20 feet above the surface. This Sentry Flag pole is stable and built for tough winds and harsh weather so you can let your flag display proudly for years to come!
