A giant Lebanese flag, said to be the largest in the world, will be unfurled in Beirut next month, Lebanon’s ambassador to Kuwait has said. “The 65,650 square metre flag is a testament to the unity of Lebanon,” Ambassador Bassam Al Naamani said. “The initial plan was to have a 25,000 square metre flag, but when we heard that another country was planning to produce a 60,000 square metre flag, we decided to upgrade ours to 65,650 square metres,” he said. The Lebanese flag is formed of two horizontal red stripes enveloping a horizontal white stripe with a green cedar in the middle. “The area of the cedar on the record-breaking flag is 10,452 square metres, a reference to Lebanon’s area of 10,452 square kilometres,” the ambassador said. The flag, 325 metres long and 202 metres wide was produced in Kuwait under the supervision of Lebanese entrepreneur Ashraf Makarem. Makarem said that the flag unfurling ceremony on October 10 will be a celebration of the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the Lebanese army. Four months were needed to produce the eight-tonne flag at a school in Kuwait, he said. In May, a group of Moroccans displayed a 60,000 square metre flag in the southern city of Dakhla in a bid to claim the record for the world’s largest flag.
