A ceremony to hoist the tallest ever flag of Pakistan was held in Bahria Garden City Islamabad on Monday.
The flag stands 160 feet tall on a pole that was specifically built for it atop a high hill inside the Bahria Golf City. The size of the flag is 25 x 40, making it one of the biggest flags in the country. The flag hoisting ceremony just days before the 70th anniversary of Pakistan is a clear indication that Bahria Town is well prepared to celebrate the independence day of the country.
On the occasion of the flag hoisting ceremony, the chairman of Bahria Town, Mr. Malik Riaz Hussain was the chief guest.
