World's biggest human flag made in Bangladesh
January 6 , 2014
Bangladesh has officially broken the world record set by Pakistan last year by making the largest human flag in the world.
Thousands of students in the country as well as armed forces held up colored placards and created the huge national symbol in the National Parade Ground located in Dhaka.
Reports suggest that 27,117 people held the colors in Bangladesh as opposed to 24,000 people in Pakistan last year. "This is the first time our nation is breaking a record like this with Pakistan," a 17-year-old student said.
An accounting firm submitted materials of the attempt to Guinness World Records, after which the record was confirmed.
