Romania unfurls huge flag and enters Guinness World Records

“It gives me great pleasure to recognize a new Guinness World Record title,” he said after measuring the flag. “Congratulations Romania!” He said Romania’s red, yellow and blue flag covers an area of about 79,290 square meters (853,478 square feet), downing Lebanon which had held the previous record.

The five-ton flag was displayed in Clinceni, 35 kilometers (22 miles) southeast of Bucharest. Workers struggled to keep it firmly planted on the ground because of windy conditions and had to use small sandbags.
