Mine is kind of the same way. There is a piece of 6" PVC pipe cemented into the ground. The flag pole is set in the pipe and then the pipe is filled with sand. As the pole vibrates due to the wind the sand settles. There is an escutcheon over the pipe to keep water out. So it can be removed but, I don't know how easy it will be after 20+ years. BTW, the system has worked perfectly. The pole is perfectly vertical after all those years.
