Flags, probably one the oldest symbol used in the world, are always a sight to behold because it is very colorful and it reminds us what we stand for in this planet. It has been waved in the early times, particularly during wars, crusades and it even remains to reign today. The significance of the flag has never changed; it still represents the ideals and beliefs of those having faith. What has changed is the process of flaunting the flag? It used to be supported by wooden poles that are attached to a specific location on structures during the early years, but now it is seen hanged on flagpoles that are normally seen on the highways.
The flagpole may seem only as a tool that allows us to admire our flags more, but we all know that every part of the flagpole plays an important role in keeping the flag assembly stable. But other than that, the mechanism attached to the flagpole is of equal importance especially the rope (halyard) or cable use. An ordinary rope or cable cannot be used because there is a higher chance of it to snap due to changing weather conditions. Of course we would not want to see flags flying off from the poles. That is why manufacturers came up with a particular rope (halyard) or cable flagpole, polypropylene made and comes in white, silver, bronze and black, that will ensure the owners that the flag will stay and serve the purpose even during terrible weather conditions.
