I have looked at this flag now for over 24 hours trying to figure a way that it can be secured to the balcony without putting any holes in it or making it too heavy with extra grommets to fly at home later on. The only idea that I can come up with is to fold over a couple of inches on the right side of it (opposite side of the grommets) then sew a straight seam with heavy nylon thread with the sewing machine. This way a rope can be put through the casings on both sides and attached to the balcony railings. It is the only thing I can come up with so that the flag will hang straight and not sideways from the ships. Anyone else out there have any ideas they would like to share?
