It seems we’ve had enough of our “Lebanese foods” (hummous, tabbouleh, kebbe) and we’ve decided to super-size the Lebanese flag:

The Lebanese military on Sunday released a picture taken from the air of the massive flag, stitched in Kuwait, assembled in Lebanon and covering 65,000 square metres (645,600 square feet) “unfurled.”

Morocco is the current holder of the Guinness world record for the largest flag, at a mere 60,000 square metres, a Lebanese military spokesman said.

Now Lebanon’s bid for the title has been displayed at Rayak air base in the east of the country, in the presence of a representative of the “Guinness World Records” book.

After an excessive search, I was able to locate a photo of the flag at GulfNews.com:
