flagCLINCENI, ROMANIA – What weighs five tons and is made up of over 44 miles of thread?

If your answer was a giant Romanian flag, you would be correct!

200 people spent several hours Monday morning rolling out this monster of a flag, which is about three times the size of a football field.

But why would you make a flag so big?

To break the Guinness World Record for largest flag ever draped!

Romania got it! They destroyed Lebanon’s previous record with the over 853,000 square foot Romanian flag.

Congrats to Romania, but what do they do with the flag now?

We’re not really sure. There isn’t a flag pole big enough to support it, so it likely goes into storage until the next country comes along with a bigger flag!
