Default Best way to hang a flag in room?

I just got a nice 3' x 6' flag that I wanna hang up in my room.. I don't know how I should go upon doing it though. I don't wanna punch any holes in it. By hanging it in my room, I meant placing it on the side wall like a poster. What should I use?

I was thinking something along the lines of those suction cup with clips or something.. if that exists lol.

Anyway.. any input is appreciated

I was actually thinking about this the other day... what if you put it in a frame so the glass front is pushing against the back tight enough so the flag doesn't move? Seems like the best way to do it without putting any holes in it...

You can put holes in a flag as long as you secure the holes with grommets (little brass rings that keep the fabric from tearing). How do you think most flags are hung on polls?

The commonly accepted way to hang a flag on a wall is to use the standard holes in the back, and hang it vertically.

A 3x6 foot plate of glass will be expensive, and heavy.

Why don't you use one of those poster hanging thingies.... you know.. its a long piece of plastic with a hollow triangular cross section with one end open... you just slide one edge of the flag along the lenght and hang the frame...
