Chandigarh: A Tricolour was on Sunday hoisted on a flag mast, said to be the country’s tallest, 323 metres from the India-Pakistan border at Attari. The flag was unfurled at a height of 355 feet from the base — which is five feet high. Add to it another 10 feet, where an aviation light stands, and the total height of the structure goes up to 365 feet. The flag is said to be visible from Lahore.
Previously, Ranchi had the tallest national flag at 300 feet.
BJP minister Anil Joshi attended the inauguration on Sunday afternoon before the beating the retreat ceremony at Attari-Wagah border in the Sunday evening.
