Title: flagpole column bracing
There is a publication called the "Metal Flagpole Manual" produced by The National Association of Architectural Metal Manufacturers (NAAMM) that I think will help you - although I have never done a flagpole design.  Their phone number is 312-332-0405 and their e-mail is naamm(--nospam--at)

Subject: flagpole column bracing

Does anyone know of a good reference for flagpole column design, or recommended design practice?  Specifically, I am interested in the magnitude of the moment at the base of the column due to axial load (p-delta effects) and instability of the system.  For arguements sake the column has no applied wind or earthquake loads.

thanks in advance!
