How to Hang a Flag

In honor of my very first Israeli Independence Day as a new Israeli citizen, I was very excited about buying a flag (or more accurately, a long string festooned with several flags) to hang from the window of my apartment in Jerusalem.
Of course in the 3 suitcases I was allowed to bring with me as a New Immigrant, I did NOT pack anything useful such as a hammer, nails, tape, thumbtacks, or any such tool or implement to facilitate the proper hanging of afore-mentioned flags.
So I did the best I could with what I have (which is nothing much but a lot of imagination) and pictured here is the outside of my apartment with my little flags flying today, on Israeli Independence Day.
Happy 59th Birthday, "Modern" State of Israel!
