This may run counter to other suggestions you will receive, but here goes.
Use the flag pole to support the vertical leg of an inverted L, and the
to support the far end.  This will give the inv L an upward slope, so that
all of the antenna is working for you.

If you use the tower as the vertical support and slope the wire down to the
flag pole, there will be a modest cancellation of radiation from the top-
most part of the vertical section.  If effect, it will be as if the vertical
was about the same height as the flag pole.

If you use any vertical configuration, consider what you will do for ground
A reasonably symmetrical layout may dictate one support or the other as the
center of the antenna system.

Good luck with it and 73
