It was a proud moment for India when the tallest ever Indian flag was erected at the Attari border. The Indian National Flag is visible from Lahore. The flag is 110 metres high, 24 metres wide and weighs 55 tonnes. However Pakistan has a problem with the flag. It has made a bizarre allegation that the flag is being used to spy against them.

Pakistan suspects that there may be a camera installed in the flag which could be used to spy against them. Pakistan even went on to complain to the Border Security Force and said that there are cameras in the flag which would compromise security.
India has however laughed off the allegation terming it as bizarre, immature and childish. "It is our prerogative to hoist our triclour. We have not violated any norms. The flag is at a distance of 200 metres away from the border. It is far enough and no laws or norms have been violated," Indian officials noted.
