Reading all the incorect information given so far makes me loose faith in this forum.

Consult Chapmans. You will find that there is nothing wrong with using the backstay for our national flag. It's not suppose to go way up high on the back stay, it should be about as high or a little higher than a staff would reach. I place mine as high as I can comfortably and safely reach. I have a ring for the upper clip permenently attached to the backstay (kind of sewn on)
