A flagpole is a pole (typically timber or metal) used to display a flag.
Most Council offices will have one or more flagpoles.
The useful life of a flagpole will vary depending on the material it is constructed from and a range of environmental factors..
The table below shows the useful life for flagpoles adopted by Councils. A useful life of about 40 years seems to be typical. Please feel free to add your Councils information below.
