Our Tiranga stands tall at the Wagah border.

The flagpole, elevated on a four-foot pedestal, stands as a prominent and captivating structure on the border. Notable attendees at the flag-raising ceremony included Nitin Gadkari, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, and Congress MP Gurjit Singh Aujla. India’s flagpole at Attari reaches an impressive height of 418 feet, surpassing its Pakistani counterpart at Wagah, which is 400 feet tall. Nitin Gadkari expressed deep patriotism and described the occasion as a “golden day” at the Attari-Wagah border. The event at the Attari border filled the local residents with pride, marking a momentous change from their accustomed view of the Pakistani flag. The construction of the flagpole, costing Rs 3.5 crore, was executed by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). Pakistan’s flag at Wagah is visible from up to 9 kilometers within Indian territory and was raised to commemorate Pakistan’s 70th Independence Day in 2017.
