Hoisted at 170 ft, national flag ‘disappears’ 14th time in 2 years in Amritsar

Amritsar, Aug 31: Keeping the national flag flying high has proved to be quite a challenge for the administration and the Amritsar Improvement Trust. Over the past two years, 14 national flags have either been damaged or blown away from its height of 170 feet at Amrit Anand Park, adjoining the national highway 1. The latest flag, hoisted on August 14 this year lasted only two weeks.

The 170-foot pole at Amrit Anand Park in Amritsar stands without its flag on Wednesday.

To date, the Amritsar Improvement Trust (AIT) that is responsible for the hoisting and the maintenance of the flag at the location has spent around Rs 10 lakh. Each flag measures around 2,400 square feet (60 feet length by 40 feet breadth). When flying, the flag is visible from a distance of 60km.
