CM Vijay Rupani on Monday reached Vadodara on a two day visit here for the state level Independence Day celebration. One of the attractions is the highest flag post in Gujarat which he inaugurated with the Tricolor hoisting on it.
The post is 67 meters in height built for 46 lakhs cost and situated inside the Shahid Smruti Van near Sama Talav. The National Flag hoisting on the highest post is 72feet long and 48 feet wide. To maintain the decorum of the National Flag the lights were continuously flash on the Tricolor from evening to morning.
As per the rules the Tricolor must be pulled down in the evening but due to its size the National Flag hoisting on the highest flag post will not be pulled down. The administration instead make arrangements to switch on the lights in the night which continuously focus on the flag and this maintain the decorum of the National Flag.
