    A Romanian village has unfurled what Guinness World Records say is the largest flag ever made.


    It took 200 people several hours to roll out the flag and the workers had to use small sandbags to keep it on the ground because of windy conditions.

    The flag covered an area of around 850,000 square feet (79,000 square metres).


    Jack Brockbank, international adjudicator for Guinness World Records, confirmed the record.

    I plan on beating them, by ordering a 100,000 sq meter pirate flag from china.

    Mojave Desert probably the best location for a 100,000 sq meter one.

    Do you get any money from being in the Guinness book of world records for making the worlds largest "flag", or is it just a waste of money ordering a giant tarp in the colors and design of a flag.

    There's no prize or money for making a World record but they will be Awarding you with an Official Certificate and some space in The Guinness World Records book.

    You get the Name and Fame. Maybe you can use it on your Custom user title when you upgrade to Jr.Vip/Donor. :D
