Moroccan Flag Listed In Guinness Book Of Records
A Moroccan flag with a size of 60,409.78 meters has been certified, Saturday in the southern city of Dakhla, by the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest flag in the world.
The announcement was made by Guinness Book of World Records' judge Tariqa Varana, who came from London to attend the presentation of the flag.
The flag, which weights over 20 tonnes, was made by the Moroccan NGO "Cercle des Jeunes Démocrates Marocains".
The world achievement comes in implementation of the call made, last November, by hundreds of youths who expressed their will to raise the Moroccan flag higher and voice their pride in their Moroccan identity before the entire world.
