World's Second-Tallest Flagmast

Landmark in Baku

A gigantic flag flaps above the Bulvar's southern tip, hoisted on a 162m flagpole that was the world's tallest when erected in September 2010. Just eight months later it was superseded by a competitor in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. You can stroll around but not climb the huge base-mound.
