Cuttack: Even as the whole country is busy celebrating the 70th Independence Day, Orissa High Court here celebrated the special occasion in a special way, unfurling Odisha’s largest tricolour atop a tall mast of around 215 feet today.

The huge national flag, which measures 75 feet in length and 48 feet in width, was hoisted by the chief justice of the Orissa High Court Justice Vineet Saran.

A special high mast flag post has been constructed and special lighting arrangements made by Public Works department (PWD) for the giant national flag, which will fly at a height of around 215 feet.


According to sources, the flag has been made in Pune.

Notably, the national flag is the tallest and will fly at the highest level in the state. Two other places in the city – National Law University and Odisha Judicial Academy – have two high mast flag posts, but are comparatively smaller in size than the flag post installed at the high court premises today.
