The Flagpole, also called the Goal Pole, is the object at the end of a traditional side-scrolling Mario game. They first appeared in Super Mario Bros., and have reappeared in numerous titles since. They haven't appeared in every main title, though. In the Super Mario series, flagpoles are replaced with stars, with the exception of Super Mario 3D Land, which is the first Super Mario game to have flagpoles instead of stars.
Grabbing the flagpole can have various effects. The higher the player is able to get to the top, closer to the flag itself, the more points he or she gets. If the player reaches the very top, the player gets a 1-Up.
