Awestruck by the towering height of the Qutub Minar? Now get ready to crane your neck at a mammoth tricolour nearly as high. The 22-metre-wide, 14.6-metre-high national flag, made of specially knitted polyester at a cost of Rs 1 crore, will be hoisted 63 metres above the ground in a park in Haryana’s Kaithal town. The flag will be hoisted in public for the first time some day in the third week of February. An initiative of the Flag Foundation of India (FFI) the tricolour will be the “largest and tallest in the country”, FFI chief executive officer Commander (Retd) K V Singh said.
