There are a number of little rules surrounding basic flag etiquette, and one of the more prominent ones surrounds lighting for flagpoles. Essentially, you’re supposed to lower any flags flown at sundown unless the flag is illuminated at night - and so choosing the right lighting for flagpoles you might have can become a concern for you should you wish to refrain from raising and lowering your banner of choice every single day, which can become a bit more of an annoyance than flying a proud flag ought to be.
To begin, many traditional manners of lighting for flagpoles could end up being very expensive - pricey, hot spotlights with old school incandescent light bulbs can really kill an electric bill - and lights that are TOO bright can result in complaints from neighbors who are trying to sleep. However, nowadays the options available are cheaper and more efficient than ever before, thus making it easier than ever for flag owners to adhere to etiquette in the realm of both flag illumination and neighborly consideration without having to add an extra chore to your to-do list every day.
