Why are flagpoles white?

On the bus today, passing through Edinburgh city centre, I noticed just what a lot of flagpoles there are there. And they are all white.

Why are flagpoles white? Is there a reason for this convention? Why can't you have a black flagpole? Or a blue one? Why doesn't it match the colours of the flag raised upon it? Somewhere back in the mists of time, there must be a reason for it...
