This is the standard guidon staff (pole to display a unit guidon flag) made to military specifications. A two-piece light oak pole with Army spear and bottom-tapered ferrule. Available in either 7', 8' or 9' sizes with brass (shown in large image) or chrome (shown in smaller image) accessories. The 7' and 8' poles includes a 7" spear, while the 9' pole includes a 8.5" spear. These guidon staffs are designed to be used in any of the military branches: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy. Also used in ROTC programs or anywhere a guidon flag needs to be displayed. These guidon staffs work perfectly with any of our Custom Military Guidons as well as our Guidon Stands. You can use our other indoor stands as well, but a guidon adapter will be necessary. NOTE: Stated size id the measurement of the wood part of the staff only. The bottom ferrule and spear top are added to this measurement, adding about 1 foot to the overall height.
