Admire Jeddah Flagpole, which, as the name suggests, has since 2014 held the world record for the world’s tallest flagpole. A flag of Saudi Arabia sits perched on top of the gargantuan, 170 m (558 ft) tall steel pole, which weighs 500 tons and towers over King Abdullah Square. Equally impressive, the massive flag boasts almost 50 m (162 ft) in length and weighs a reported 570 kg (1,260 lb).

  • It lives up to it's name, a pole, the flag is rarely put on the pole, and when it does it's just a meh. Typical sighting for a typical monarchy.  more »
  • A must-see or drive-by if you are in Jeddah. The world's tallest flagpole and in the middle of a traffic circle. You cant miss it.  more »
