The 360-foot high Indian National Flag at the Attari-Wagah border

The Tricolour is indeed visible from Pakistan. However it is visible from the Attari Wagah Border and not Lahore. OneIndia did a search which led us to the YouTube channel of Pakistan news outlet City 24.

The video titled "Wagah Attari border Indian flag disappeared," says how the Indian flag which is usually visible from the Pakistan side of the border allegedly disappeared for sometime.

It may be recalled that in August 2017, the flag which is 360 feet tall had suffered wind damage and had to be taken down and replaced. While looking at the video and the image being shared on the social media, it appears that it was shot from the Pakistan side of the border.
