You need to make the right 'flag' key into a control key, like so:

clear control
clear mod4
keycode 4711 = Control_R
add control = Control_L Control_R
add mod4 = Foo Bar

First, you say "xmodmap -pm" to see which modifiers Super_R appears
in.  Above, I'm assuming it's mod4.  If Super_R is not mentioned in
any modifier, then just omit the two lines mentioning mod4.

Secondly, you need to find out the keycode of the right 'flag' key,
perhaps by running xev.  Above, I'm assuming the code is 4711.

That's what I use and it works well.
