Question Question about attaching a patch to my bag

I want to attach this flag patch to my gun bag, but don't really know the best way.

Should I sew it on or just superglue/hotglue it? The back of the patch has a kind of glossy finish to it.

Thanks

It does look like an iron on, but over time it may fall off. The best way to keep it there is to sew it on, then you can take it off easier if needed or replace it easier.

Yep, they eventually come off if you iron it. (no offense scottl1346) Sewing is the best.

I would use Velcro you still have to sew on the velcro but them you can change the flag if you want.

There's a bunch of great glues out there, pick the right one and that patch will be there for the life of your bag.

Scorpio will become famous soon enough
Iron it on and then throw in a few stitches for good measure. The stars and stripes are worth the time and effort.

All my Harley patches have that look on the back.
Sew it on. At harley events they sew on a lot of patches, they start with
two sided tape to get it where you want. I have few patches needed to be
sew on my vest for NRA and DNR instructors and the usa flag. I have a tailor shop in town and their sewing machines can handle heavy material, wife trys
on some, but the flag at a angle is easy to do without tape to start with.
