World’s largest flag?

Have you ever wondered how big a flag can be? If this is any indication, plenty big. This Israeli flag is huge at 328 feet by 656 feet. I don’t know how they will fly this flag, but that’s another challenge.

The Guinness Book of Records is sending a representative to verify the size before awarding it “The Worlds Biggest flag” title.

The flag, which is 100-meters long (328-feet) and 200-meters (656-feet) wide, is the size of two football fields. It is slated to arrive at the Ashdod port in the coming days.

The flag was sewn for three weeks by six tailors, guided by two designers, with the help of 40 volunteers. It weighs 5,200 kilograms (11,440 pounds).

The flag was initiated and financed by Sister Grace Gupana, an Israel-loving businesswoman, in honor of 50 years of friendship between Israel and the Philippines.
