Default Flag Light

I have a client that wants to shine light on a flag the flag is about 6 ft by 10 ft, The pole is around 30 ft, I would like to use an LED fixture and have it pointing up at the flag. trying to determine what type of fixture to use. The flag will change position depending on the wind.

For price and ease of instal check out the cross tour line by cooper lighting. They make an 85W led that is more of a spot than flood. Would be perfect for what you want.
