Banner Mounting

I have a big banner that we want to hang off the top roof of our 2 story building. The banner has holes on all corners. We can mount the top part of the banner into the roof by drilling or tieing. As for the bottom part, I'm concerned of it flying up and/or out of hand on a windy day. We were thinking of tieing heavy fishing sinkers on the bottom corners but we're concerned that in time, it may fall and possibly hit someone walking by.

Any advice on other ways to properly hang this banner off the roof ledge. Thank you!

Just to clear the air, if it is a public building (and maybe if it isn't) you may need to have a permit to hang it. Your top should be secured all across the line, not just in the corner. It will sag otherwise. Likewise, the bottom should be tethered at angles solidly. Anything just tied to it will either become projectiles, or will beat the building and windows to death.

If all you have to work with are the corners,and there are no mid points to tie to,you would want tie downs at each corner in an X shaped pattern tied tight to something.That is the only practical way to hang this banner.If there are mid points to tie to you would definately want to use them also with tight tie downs tied to something.
