Flag or sail hung awry (8)


I believe the answer is:


'flag' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'sail hung awry' is the wordplay.
'awry' indicates anagramming the letters.
'sailhung' with letters rearranged gives 'LANGUISH'.

'or' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for languish that I've seen before include "Long" , "Become discouraged" , "Droop" , "Lose or lack vitality" , "Haul sign away - lack vitality" .)
