The flags from SC12GT were pieces of paper with our number on them. I figured it would not last the season, so I immediately laminated it. That came with other benefits other than assisting on the wearability issue. It easily stands up for picture taking on the tank bag. I do have clips but havent had to use them. Also while the wind will blow it away, not as easily and when that does happen easier to find on the ground. Another thing it can't fall down in the fairing. I have thought about folding in thirds but it fits very nicely on top of all the other crap in the tank bag and acts like a inner lid. I don't really zip up the tank bag while underway so thats a benefit as well.
At first I didn't understand your question, so I wasn't sure how to answer it
