FAQ about Guidon Poles
Those with additional questions about our guidon flagpoles can reach out to our Flag Pros via our contact us form.
1. What is the purpose of a guidon staff?
The guidon pole holds and displays a guidon, a small flag or banner representing a military unit. The guidon flag helps unit members distinguish their unit or troop from others. It is also an official symbol of the unit’s identity, pride, and unity.
2. What length guidon pole should I buy?
The length of your guidon staff will vary depending on your military unit's specific regulations or preferences.
3. Can guidon poles be used indoors?
Yes, guidon flagpoles can be used indoors for ceremonial purposes or when displaying the guidon is required. We recommend purchasing a guidon floor stand if you need to convert your guidon staff to an indoor flagpole. Please allow at least 6” of ceiling clearance if displaying your flag indoors.
