The Best Flagpoles
by Adam Bright
Early flagpoles were simply trees selected for their relative straightness that were cut down, stripped of bark and branches, and then replanted in the ground with a flag attached at the top.
These trees would be shaped with knives and then sanded to a smooth finish. Animal fat was then used as a preservative and rubbed over the entirety of the pole for several days to ensure the wood was totally saturated with the fat. In the hands of an expert, these poles could remain functional for over 50 years. These flagpoles were very attractive, but due to their direct installation into the ground, they typically rot at the base.
Close to the turn of the twentieth century, steel banner poles turned out to be more prominent, in spite of the fact that they were regularly basically the reused materials that had filled different needs. Wooden posts got to be outdated. In the later 1920s, flagpole makers started building the long tapered poles so basic today.
Manufacturing advances in extruding aluminum poles led eventually to the dominance of aluminum and aluminum alloys as the primary materials for creating flagpoles today. Aluminum is more versatile as a manufacturing material, and as production processes have improved, it has become far cheaper than steel.
The pole used to "fly" the banner planted on the moon by the Apollo 11 group may have been the most built flagpole ever. The pole was planned with an extendable level backing to hold a banner out firmly in the absence of climate, on the surface of the moon. It was made light weight and utilized an extendable outline that could be controlled by space explorers wearing monstrous space suit gloves.
