Nacional unveil largest ever flag at a sporting event, after 7 years of planning
- April 5, 2013
What. A. Flag! Seriously, this flag is outrageously big.
Ahead of Nacional’s Copa Libertadores game against Toluca, Nacional fans unveiled the daddy of all flags.
At 600m in length and 54m in in height, it covered most of the stadium and it seemed to inspire the team sufficiently as they ran out 4-0 winners.
The idea for the flag was first put forward in 2006. It took over 18 months to make and print, with 5000 fans assisting in the process.
