What should I do with a full size nylon Irish flag?

Answered
Hello everyone. When my mother passed away I was given full size nylon Irish flag. I'm guessing it's dimensions are 6 ft by 3. And no I don't know why she had it, lol. My question is does anyone have any ideas what to do with it. I hate to just shove it in a flag case and really have no place to fly it. I appreciate your ideas and help. Abbey

    We received a huge framed American flag. If you have a huge hallway wall you could place it there.

    You could make it into a quilted throw in memory of your mother.

    I like the quilted throw idea as long as you remember it is a flag and don't let it get on the floor - treat it with the respect it deserves for what it is and the fact that it was special to her.

    I'd check with the rules of Ireland before doing anything with it. As Marietta mentioned, it should be treated with respect it is due.

    I like Sara's idea. Flags make excellent wall art. You can place it in a large DIY frame behind a sofa in a family room or on a hallway wall with family pictures.

    Is her heritige Irish? My mother's grandfather imigrated from Tyrone, Ireland, northern, Protestant not Catholic, so Orange is "our" color instead of "Green". Do you know your geneology? If it is a real Irish flag, I wouldn't quilt it, but frame it or hang it on the wall. I'd find out how to keep it from fading or thinning. Archiving it correctly. It's been handed down to you and I would think that you would want to hand it down. My thoughts on your treasure.

    You could donate it to an Irish Club or dancing school. I'm sure they would appreciate it.
