hia... i didnt know which section to post this in but i thought this section seemed more appropriate than the others.... i got a new flag today courtosy of ebay! the flag has some damage to it... has several holes in it where it has been folded up and there are small holes in just about the entire part of the stripes... the only unaffected part seems to be the canton which seems to be im pretty good shape apart from one small hole. here some pics of it i would love to be able to do something about these holes but there is the problem of missing material... it isnt a case of sewing this because the edges of the holes are so fragile no stitching would take... would make it worse... but the problem is these holes are fragile- i found a very small (half by half inch) patch of material from the flag in the bottom of the package that the flag came in. im worried about these holes getting worse what my thoughts on it were was to do what ive done and put the pole through the header sleeve at the top and display it pretty much like it is (but not over the window!) .... i would have liked to have it vertical but the problem with that it the top hook on the flag has come away there isnt anythign there to hook the flag with and im worried with its delicate nature to sew any new hook to the top though the material just there is 2 ply. any ideas how best to keep this flag safe from any further harm? or how to make it less fragile?
