(MENAFN- Khaleej Times) The Flag Island, Sharjah's iconic tourist destination, has entered the Guinness World Records after raising the world's largest flag. The successful attempt formed part of the spectacular national festivities the island organised on Thursday and Friday as part of the nationwide Flag Day celebrations.
Measuring 70 metres in length and 35 metres in width, the flag broke the Guinness World Record for the largest flag hoisted on a fixed flagpole. The Flag Island had awarded Trident Flagpoles, a leading company specialised in designing and making banners and flags, to manufacture the huge red, green, black and white standard for the attempt. The day also featured the largest gathering of flag raising in the UAE, which was organised in cooperation with The Higher Committee of National Day Celebrations in Sharjah.
Kholood Al Junaibi, Manager of The Flag Island, pointed out that the new achievement adds to the portfolio of milestones made by The Flag Island, stressing the island's commitment to always achieving an impressive presence that reflects the stature of the UAE and Sharjah regionally and globally.
"Since its inception, The Flag Island has proudly been a venue that has the UAE flag as its central showpiece, with its aim being to inculcate the values of patriotism and loyalty to our much-loved country," said Al Junaibi.
