Acuity Flagpole

FLAGPOLE


Visit any time you'd like!

The flagpole and memorial can be visited at any time. The flag may be taken down temporarily during times of maintenance or severe weather. It will also be lowered to half staff during official observances.
* No upcoming maintenance or observations scheduled.

Visible from a considerable distance, the flagpole is located on the company's headquarters campus along Interstate 43 between Milwaukee and Green Bay on Lake Michigan.

  • The flagpole is nearly 100 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty
  • 70- by 140-foot flag is the world's largest free-flying American flag
  • Each stripe is over 5 feet high and each star nearly 3 feet across
  • 9,800-square-foot flag weighs 340 pounds

A Veterans Memorial featuring the names of Sheboygan County residents killed in active duty is installed at the flagpole's base.

  • At 400 feet, the flagpole is the tallest in the world flying a U.S. flag
  • Flagpole weighs approximately 420,000 pounds
  • Flagpole is designed to withstand a low temperature of -42 degrees and wind speeds up to 120 miles per hour
  • Three pendulum-style tuned mass dampers reduce movement and vibration

Erecting a flagpole of such height in a location where temperatures frequently fall below zero required a team of experts to ensure structural integrity and maintainability. The pole supports a 70- by 140-foot American flag.

  • 11-foot diameter at base of pole tapers to 5 1/2 foot diameter at top
  • 680 cubic yards of concrete used in foundation
  • Over 500 gallons of paint cover the pole

"We proudly fly this flag because we are blessed to live and work in the United States of America."
-Ben Salzmann, President and CEO
