RE: Flag Drag

Every time I’ve put a flagpole on top of a structure, the flagpole manufacturer provided reactions.  You might try to find out who the manufacturer is and talk to them.

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.
