    In my work sight they are panning to put a camera (CCTV) on the flag pole to monitor the traffic flow into the establishment. My question is "Can anything be attached to the flag pole?" I thought that nothing could be attached to the flag pole, except for a light ... wondering before it gets attached to the flag pole ...

    As far as I know, there's nothing prohibiting that. I don't think the flag code addresses what may be attached to a flagpole. I think it would be okay as long as the camera is attached/mounted in a manner that allows the flag to be raised and lowered, and it's in a position where the flag won't get caught on it. In fact, it is very common for cell phone towers to be "disguised" as a large flagpole. If you can do that, I don't see why you couldn't mount a camera on one.
