More than 24,000 Pakistanis yesterday made the world’s largest “human national flag” in Lahore, breaking a five-year-old record set in Hong Kong, officials said.
A total of 24,200 citizens stood up in the national hockey ground to make the green and white Pakistani standard, breaking the 2007 record set by 21,726 people in Hong Kong.
“It’s amazing, amazing display of unity of 24,200 Pakistanis citizens here in Lahore tonight,” Guinness World Records adjudicator Gareth Deaves told a entertaining crowd.
“Every single one of you holds this record,” he said, handing over the certificate to Punjab govt representative Hamza Shahbaz Sharif.
On Saturday evening 42,813 Pakistanis people in the national hockey ground sang the national anthem together, breaking the earlier best of 15,243 held by India.
