NAAMM FP 1001, "Guide Specifications for Design of Metal Flagpoles." is one of the referenced methods in MasterSpec for flag pole design so you might want take a look at that...

Here?s what I got.


A flag pole wants to be installed on top of a Structure.  I want to make sure that the flag pole on hand is capable of the loading.  Therefore, I need to know how to calculate the wind load on the waving banner.  Is there a spec out there, or can someone point me in the right direction, as to a design procedure for this.  I?d appreciate it.
