Or a flag inversion modifier… recently I discovered that the Philippines flag, for example, has a special meaning (we are at war) when inverted.  Just a thought.

Rather than modifiers, I think a more natural thing would be to have different base characters that reflect whether it's a flag, a pennant, waving, flying from a flag stock or whatever other variety.

Base characters could be limited to an "approved" list, which could be extended as needed to cater to actual demand.

In this context, I dislike the current proposal to use a WAVING flag as a base character for non-waving plan and rectangular images of flags.

Whatever notation that might be added to whatever decision is
ultimately made on this should probably mention historic use of the
rainbow flag by the peace movement. See for example:
The colors of the rainbow peace flag (purple on top) are often inverted
with respect to the LGBT flag (red on top), making them essentially two
different flags.
