Guinness World Records for Largest Flag

The world’s largest flag was stretched out at a Romanian village, setting a new Guinness World Records.

The flag, which measured 1,145 feet by 744 feet, took 200 volunteers to roll out, and was spread over seven acres of an airfield in Clinceni, near Bucharest. They also used small sandbags to keep it on the ground because of windy conditions. The tricolored flag which weighed five tonnes covered an area of about 853,478 sq feet.

The previous record for the world’s largest flag was held by Lebanon.
