You said 4'6"x18" and 4'x14 sidewalks - I am assuming you meant 4'6" wide by 18 FEET long, not 18 inches - and 4' by 14', so total of 137 SF of sidewalk. If you actually meant 18" then 63 SF which is more like a patch job size, so your cost will likely be about 50-100% more than stated below if that is the case.

Depends of course on your local costs and dump fees (or availability of recycling at reasonable cost) and such, and accessibility - but in cheap areas with very easy access and relatively low dump fees, probably around $10-15/SF for this pretty small job - only about 1+ to around 2 CY depending on whether 3" or 4" thickness.

Don't know where you got the 4 yards of concrete from - for the dimensions given (assuming the 18 and 14 foot lengths) 4 yards would give you 9-1/2" thickness - so unless you have a pet elephant or T-Rex using this sidewalk, this is less than a normal minimum truckload (maybe where you got the 4 cy number) so price will be higher than the usual $6-10 for this type job. It is quite possible the contractor will do this with an on-site portable mixer, not a ready mix truck.

The flagpole base means a concreted in pier or block in the ground - depending on how much of a flagpoleyou mean, that could add 1/4 to 1 yard typically - plus excavation for that, so maybe another $250-500 depending on base needed.

Obviously, Concrete - Pouring and Repair would be the normal Search the List to find well-rated and reviewed contractors to bid this job.
