The National tricolor measuring 120 ft by 80 ft on the 110 Mtrs (from the base plate to Top umbrella) Flag was unfurled on March 12, 2018, at Fort Lake near BUDA office which is now second Tallest flag pole in India.
But ever since it was unfurled many a time it had to be brought down as the flag tore due to heavy winds.
Now the City corporation has planned to hoist the flag only thrice a year namely on Independence day, Republic day and Karnataka Rajyotsava.
The suggestion will be placed at a joint meeting of the Corporation, BUDA, DC and RC in the coming weeks and if agreed upon the flag would be hoisted only thrice a year.
This kind of Flag are termed as “Monumental flag” and the flag is made of weatherproof polyester fabric (Deneir Polyester).
