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 will be the tallest flag pole in India.
The city made it to the news a the tallest but after a while, as the flag tore due to strong winds the joy was short-lived.
The flag could not even withstand the wind for a week and had to be brought down and new one hoisted back. But later due to the cost, it was decided that Flag would be hoisted on Independence Day and Republic day.
From this Republic day the 9600 sq ft flag has been shrunken to 5400 sq feet. As many as four flags at a cost of Rs.75,000 each made by a Mumbai based company have been ordered and received by City Corporation.
On 26 January the flag would be hoisted and if it can withstand the winds the same would be continued officials say.
