MANSEHRA: Officials of municipal administration in Mansehra district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) claimed on Friday to have painted the ‘largest’ national flag to commemorate Pakistan’s 70th Independence Day.

The national flag, which has been painted on grass using white water paint, is 250 feet wide and 150 feet in height, Tehsil Nazim Mansehra Khurram Khan told The Express Tribune.

The flag has been painted on Koh-e-Behra, also known as Lughmani Heights, on Mansehra bypass road, Khan added.

According to Khan, his staff members spent 12 days on painting the “country’s only hillside mega size national flag”.

Responding to a question, he said some people painted a flag last year too but that was small in size.

The flag is now open for public view and a huge crowd of spectators is thronging the site.
