More than Thirty five thousand Nepalese people gathered in Tudhikhel ground at Kathmandu to lift their national flag with pride, not an national occasion it was, but an attempt to set the world record on making the world’s largest human flag which was formerly held by Pakistan by making human flag of 29,000 people in Lahore . The Lahore record was broke so splendidly on the morning of 23rd August, 2014 when around 38,000 enthusiastic Nepalese youths, children, men,women and even seniors attended the record setting events.

As the national anthem was played, each registered member present in the ground held a playcard and stood in area shaped as Nepali national flag for 10 min long. The flag ware was 128 m wide and 168 m long and was so easy to geometrical design the flag shape, since Nepals’ flag is the most mathematical flag in the world.
