    Depending on what you are using it for you could make 4 small brackets to hold it in place.

    You could take some 3/4" x 1/16" steel strapping and wrap the circle down to a v-shaped pair of legs with a bolt through the legs where they meet and then bend 90 degree feet and drill holes for bolting the feet down.

    Use some screws to hold the fan by the rim?

    I would try to find a big C-clip, then drill holes after getting it around those two flanges.

    Drill a hole, file a hole, hump a hole, etc.
    Use big washers.
    Use shroud with mounting clips.
