Halyard

Thread, rope or cable that is used to raise the flag to the truck, the origin of the Halyard concept, is the sentence to carry meters.

In the end

Each part of the structure of the flagpole is important since each one has a primary function, especially due to the height and weight it supports when the flag is up, although the flag is not heavy but when it is at height and with the wind, it generates force for movements. The installation of a flagpole must be done professionally.
