Flagpole and Flag

Does anyone know where I can buy a flagpole and Union Flag . I want it for the back of my terraced house in Accrington so maybe a wall mounted one will be best.

Re: Flagpole and Flag

There is quite a few on Amazon. All seem reasonably priced.

Here you go Greeny, I used these a couple of weeks ago to get my Lanky & White ensign flags, they arrived within a week (and I'm in Germany).

Re: Flagpole and Flag

the laws state that flying a flag at the front of your house you need permission, but the back of the house is OK as long as the Flag is not too high.
Thanks for the web site Dave in Germany , I shall look into it.

My neighbour opposite has a large flag pole and Union Flag flying which is higher than the bungalow.
I will find out where he got it, I tried last night but it he was out.
He has his battalion flag flying as well and drops it to third mast whenever one of his ex comrades is killed in action.
It was down a lot last year.

Re: Flagpole and Flag

Thanks for that Gremlin. I was thinking of a wall mounted one , we only have a small backyard.

Re: Flagpole and Flag

According to the pdf available form the government here you do not need planning consent if it is the flag of this country and it can be flown at the front.

(a) Flags which do not need consent
The recent changes allow a wider range of national, sub-national, community and international flags. The full list of flags that do not require consent are:
(a) Any country’s national flag, civil ensign or civil air ensign;
(b) The flag of the Commonwealth, the European Union, the United Nations or any other international organisation of which the United Kingdom is a member;
(c) A flag of any island, county, district, borough, burgh, parish, city, town or village within the United Kingdom;
(d) The flag of the Black Country, East Anglia, Wessex, any Part of Lincolnshire, any Riding of Yorkshire or any historic county within the United Kingdom;
(e) The flag of Saint David;
(f) The flag of Saint Patrick;
(g) The flag of any administrative area within any country outside the United Kingdom;
