Reports claim that the pole is so tall that one can see the tricolor from Lahore. Lahore is at a distance of  24 kms from Wagah.

 

 

The flag is 120 feet in length and 80 feet in breadth. The pole weighs 55 tons. Amritsar Improvement Trust Authority of the Punjab Government constructed it at a cost of Rs.3.50 crore.

But Pakistani Rangers have filed an objection with the Border Security Force (BSF) over the flag. They want it installed away from the border.

Pakistan believes that India will use the flag pole to spy on them.

 

India countered Pakistan’s accusation of “treaty violation” by saying that it had been installed around 200 meters before the zero line.

Anil Joshi, a minister in the Punjab government who unfurled the flag after permission from Election Commission, told India Today: “It is our national flag and nobody can stop us from hoisting it on our soil.”
