You can buy a fairly inexpensive kit from Home Hardware, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. If you buy one in Iowa, you don't have to increase your insurance. Check with your local laws. If I made mine I would have to carry a million dollar liability.
The strength of any flag pole depends greatly on how deeply it is anchored down into the ground with concrete.
