Flag display help......

Hi all. Been a while since I have posted here....been really busy lately. I am trying to design a display case for a flag. It is a 9/11 memorial flag that is 45" tall and 61-1/2" long. I am going to build a large shadow box for it and I want to make sure it lays completely flat and wont sag. Has anyone done this? Any ideas? I was thinking of gluing fabric to the backer to put the flag on but how do I secure the flag and make it perfectly flat.
I talked with my mother, who is good with fabric and preserving things and such and she mentioned a non-acid fabric and not to have the glass touch the flag....which isn't an issue but how do I secure the flag without any worry of it sagging in the display. Im lost. Any help would be appreciated.

Velcro (hook side) sewed along all four edges. Loop side tacked (stapled) onto the back. No adhesives and no worries about acids or solvents discoloring the flag.
