Are you looking for a way to add a touch of patriotism or personality to your home without taking up too much space? Wall-mounted flags are a wonderful option. Not only do they provide an eye-catching display in any room, but they also help maximize space in a stylish, yet functional way. Whether you want to celebrate your favorite sports team or movie franchise, or simply showcase your flag collection from countries you’ve visited, flag wall displays are a great way to do it. Here are five creative ideas for making the most of your space with a flag wall mount display.
1. Flag Shadow Box
For a sophisticated display that’s sure to impress, create a shadow box out of an old wooden frame and line it with fabric or felt. It’s called a shadow box because the wooden frame is a few inches thick creating depth, and is usually covered with glass or transparent fiberglass. This creates an elegant display case for your flags and can be hung directly on the wall or placed on a shelf.
2. Framed Flag Wall Art
Another creative idea, similar to the shadow box, is to frame your flag. This makes for a beautiful wall art piece that celebrates your patriotism, favorite team, or fandom in style. Measure the flag and purchase a frame that fits the size of the flag. Be sure to secure the flag to the back of the frame so that it won’t droop or sag over time. You can then hang the flag on a statement wall in your home or even better, group several flags together in different frame lengths and sizes for a more interesting look.
3. Flag Wall Hanger
This next idea works quite well for indoor and outdoor spaces. Instead of hanging flags directly on the wall, use a flag wall hanger to display them, similar to a modern curtain rod. A flag hanger is specially designed to hold a single flag. It generally has two parts: a metal or wooden rod from which the flag hangs and a part that mounts to the wall or to a hook for easy installation. This works great for a front porch or entryway and looks very stylish. The hangers are available in various styles from bohemian to modern, so you can choose one that best suits your decor.
4. Flag Canvas Print
For something completely unique, why not turn your favorite flag into a canvas print? All you need to do is take a digital photo of the flag, upload it to an online printing service, select the size you want, and have the canvas print delivered right to your door. Hang it above a sofa or bed for a unique piece of wall art that celebrates what you love most.
5. Wall-Mounted Mini Flagpole
While wall-mounted flagpoles are typically used outdoors, there’s no reason why you can’t bring them indoors, too. They’re an easy and straightforward way to show off your favorite flags, banners, or house crests. All you need are flagpole brackets, the pole, and mounting hardware, depending on the surface where you’ll be installing your flagpole. Then, simply hang your mini flagpole from the wall and attach the flag. Some flagpole brackets even have slots for two or more poles in case you want to display multiple flags.
No matter which of these flag wall mount ideas you choose, they can all be customized to fit your unique style and space. Have fun with it and add some creative touches, such as adding paint or other decorative elements. Your guests will definitely appreciate the burst of personality in your home!
