Structure

A typical flagstaff pedestal has two main parts, a flagstaff and a pedestal. They are usually connected by brackets, but many flagstaffs are anchored in the center of the pedestal to which they are connected.

A pedestal may or may not be connected to a flagstaff.

Pedestals sides are referenced by letters with the northmost side being side "A". Other sides are labeled clockwise from there.

Pedestal

The pedestal is made of two parts: the body and the base. It's made of stone or marble and can vary greatly in size. Many pedestals consist only of the body and do not have a base.

Flagstaff

Most flagstaffs are made of wood, but a few are made of metal.
