Add a layer mask to the flag layer. Find a really rough textured brush. I used this one from Kyle's mega pack, but modified by adding 50% angle jitter in  Brush settings.

Make sure you have the search window turned on in the right click brush panel so you can use search words like rough, splatter, texture etc.  It only looks for presets in the main window, so Kyle's megapack makes a good source because it has hundreds of presets and they are all very good.
