On Sunday, India hoisted the nation's tallest flag at the famous Indo-Pak (Attari-Wagah) border in the northern Indian state of Punjab, close to the holy city of Amritsar.
The tallest Indian flag which is 360-foot long is high enough to be spotted from Lahore in Pakistan. Previously 293 feet high flag is in the Ranchi. A private company will look after the flag maintenance; it has got this maintenance contract for 3 years.
The neighbour has called the act a violation of worldwide treaties.

The father said there was no reason for the family to suspect anything was wrong. He also insisted Ben was a "happy young man" who had big plans for the future.
Islamabad believes India could use this giant flag for espionage purposes, ANI reported.
The flag is 110 metres long, 24 metres wide, weighs 55 tonnes and is expected to become a major tourist attraction at the Attari-Wagah border.
"It is our national flag and nobody can stop us from hoisting it on our soil", Anil Joshi, a minister in the Punjab government, told India Today. Deccan Herald on Saturday reported that the Pakistan Rangers, during a recent meeting with the Border Security Force (BSF), expressed concerns over such a tall structure being installed just 200 metres from such a critical global border.
India has made it clear that the flat was being installed 200 metres before the zero line and was not a violation in any manner.
