I believe the wave plugin is intended for circular ripples on a water surface. It's like a bump map in that it doesn't actually move the CPs, it just creates shading that looks like ripples. It probably wouldn't be effective on a thin ribbon.

 

 

Can you show a picture of your ribbon situation?

That's good looking cloth!

 

If you need something graphically more simple you can rig a strip of patches with bones and animate them to create waves and rippling:

 

Pennant000.mov

 

PennantChor000.mov

 

 

My 4-bone version is a bit lumpy but if you did that concept with 8 bones I think it would look smooth.

Change the "Save as Type" to "All Files" and make sure it's putting ".prj" at the end

These would look great off in the distance but look synthetic up close.
