How to stop a singing mast?

I generally move halyards etc. cause I like the boat quiet at night. The other night I got back to the dock at midnight and spent 45 minutes after I went to bed trying to figure what this intermittant horrible vibration in the rig was. Went up and checked lines etc. a couple times, finally dawned on me that I had left a small flag up on backstay that was vibrating just right during certain wind gusts from the stern. I couldn''t tell where it was coming from I just knew that wire was involved.
