India's tallest tricolour hoisted at Attari border

India's tallest tricolour hoisted at Attari border

The flag, which can be spotted from Lahore in Pakistan, is 120 X 80 feet and stands at the tallest position at 360 feet. The foundation has been designed in such a way that the flag will be able to withstand high velocity winds up to 180 km an hour, said sources. The project cost was Rs 3.6 crore. Again on Thursday Pakistan raised concerns over the tall flag and called the hoisting a violation of worldwide treaties. On the maintenance issues, he was quoted by the Indian Express saying for taking care of it a private company has bagged the contract for three years.

Pakistan has raised concerns over India's tallest ever flag being as an instrument for "espionage", according toThe Independent. The pole, which is already in place, is said to be visible from a long distance, even from Lahore in Pakistan.

However, Indian authorities gave clarifications that the installation was done 200 meters away from the zero line and hence, the treaties aren't violated. They fear that India could use the mast to spy over Pakistani land by installing cameras on the flag pole.

Yes, the nation is of the opinion that this flag has violated global treaties.
