How We Got Started

Bates Flags & Flagpoles LLC, is a small, woman owned and operated, residential-based business. Owner-Manager, Diana, is responsible for all inside operations of the business, including sales and quotes. Our Service Manager, Mario, sees to all services; repairs, installations and any flagpole service needs. We use the assistance of our subcontracted laborer's, Rob and Anthony, when needed for larger or more difficult projects. 

The business was acquired in October 2013, when the previous owner decided to retire. It was decided to keep the name and make the business into a Limited Liability Company; dedicated to offering old fashioned, personal service and only the highest quality in flag and flagpole products. Our BATES Signature Flagpole was a staple part of the original Bates Flags; we upgraded the flagpole to include a flash collar and base; later,  creating our own BATES II flagpole. 

In the beginning, we operated the business part-time, servicing Charlotte County. Diana worked outside the home; Mario had his own small business. 

In December 2014, Diana became ill, no longer able to work outside the home. Out of necessity, this part-time business now became a full-time business.

Calls began coming from other regions; jobs became more frequent through word-of-mouth, so the business began to grow. Bates Flags & Flagpoles LLC, though small, has been said to be the ONLY business, in the area, that performs flagpole repair services. From this, we have grown from a localized business, to servicing customers throughout the Sun Coast of Florida, to Naples. 

Because we take pride in what we do, we added our own Limited Warranty on ALL of our Products & Services, in addition to any manufacturer warranties.

Our own "BATES" Brand of Commercial Grade Residential Flagpoles; our BATES Signature 20', and our BATES II 18' flagpole are Made By, and Exclusively Available through Bates Flags & Flagpoles, LLC., have become very popular for our residential customers' for their quality and elegant appearance. 

All of our flag & flagpole products are Commercial Grade and made in the USA.

We recently added solar lights to our products list that are 'Assembled' in the USA, Keeping with our standards of 'American Made Products'.

We want the name "Bates Flags & Flagpoles, LLC" to be a name you can trust for our commitment to quality and service.
