    Hanging flags

    Any suggestions on hanging flags without putting tack or pin holes in them? I am looking at hanging flags on a ceiling that is on roughly a 45 degree angle, and have struggled to find a way to hang them without actually pinning the flags.

    I use spring loaded wooden clothes pegs.

    I nail the pegs to a length of timber and then affix the timber to the wall, beam etc,.

    Super easy to remove the flag once up =, if needed.(just unclip the flag like you are taking down the washing)

    i use roughly 7-9 pegs along the hoist edge.

    If you get super enthusiatic, you can make up a pelmet to hide the pegs.

        sounds like an attic room and I think the heat will hurt them.

          You might try binder clips from an office supply store. The little wire handles then serve as an eyelet for whatever hardware you hang them with.

            Hello,
            I use plastic clips that I buy at the dollar store. You can find them in many sizes. Many of them already have a hole thru the clip that can serve as an eyelet for hooks etc. I prefer plastic as I'd rather not use metal on the flag itself.

              That's what I did with a couple of small flags. It works well and the clips don't seem to have damaged the material in any way.

                Kyle, how big is the flag that you want to display? If it's small enough you could use what's called a "compression mount" which sandwiches the flag in a frame between plexi glass and non-acidic backing. If you have very basic woodworking skills you will only be limited by available sizes of plexi glass.
