Nautical Flagpoles

Nautical Flagpoles Nautical flagpoles are custom made and are meant to represent the sailing vessels from our maritime heritage. They are ideally suited for marinas and coastal areas associated with marine activities.

Nautical flagpoles may have either a yardarm only or a yardarm and gaff. The yardarm is the horizontal spar used to support and spread a square sail. The gaff is the spar rising aft from the mast to support the head of a quadrilateral fore-and-aft sail. On a nautical flagpole, the yardarm and gaff are used to fly flags.

Nautical flagpoles are equipped with multiple halyards enabling you to fly a number of different flags. The gaff is considered the position of honour and the national flag of the host country is flown from there.
