The wall-mounted pole.
Another type of flagpole is the wall-mounted pole. These poles are mounted on a wall or other type of support and are usually shorter than free-standing poles. Wall-mounted poles can be made from various materials, including wood, metal, and plastic. Finally, there are portable flagpoles. These poles are typically made from aluminum or another type of light metal. Portable flagpoles are often used in parades or other public events where it is not possible to erect a permanent flagpole.
