SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker will be on hand Monday morning, when the nation's tallest flagpole is dedicated in Sheboygan.

Acuity Insurance will hold a ceremony for a 400 foot flagpole. It's about 100 feet taller than the current record pole in Laredo Texas.

Acuity has tried four times to have the nation's tallest flagpole without it being damaged. Its first effort was a 150 foot pole in 2003. A winter storm took down another pole. Yet another 338 foot pole swayed too much to be safe.

Acuity says its newest pole is designed to withstand Mother Nature. The company's flagpoles can easily be seen from Interstate 43.
