Very Tall Flagpoles

Wednesday, 19th July 2006 by

We've previously featured Mexico's giant flags but this is the world's largest unsupported flagpole in Jordan. Narrowly beating the previous record holder in UAE, the flagpole is 126.8 metres tall, is illuminated at night and can apparently be seen from as far as 20km away. Basically, it's very big.

But it's not that big! The world's tallest supported flagpole is on the border of North and South Korea and towers over the land at 160m. Basically, it's very, very big.
