The biggest flag in the world was unfolded on the Clinceni Airfield (near Bucharest). The flag is 349 metre long, 226 metre wide and weighs a total of 5 tons. The flag was made in partnership by Antena 3 TV and fabricadesteaguri.eu and was homologated by the Guiness World Records. Guinness World Records official says the flag measures 79,290.39 square metres. The previous world record was held by Lebanon for a flag of 65,975 square metres. The making of the flag took hundreds of hours of day and night work as well as ingenious solutions for the manufacturing and transport to the place where it was displayed.
The first pieces of the flag started being stitched together two months ago. Among the participants in the event yesterday there were Prime Minister Victor Ponta, Defence Minister Mircea Dusa, and Interior Minister Radu Stroe. The pilots with the Airclub of Romania offered a spectacular 20-minute show above the biggest flag in the world. The Hawks of Romania flew their Extra 300 aircraft painted in the national colours.
