100-foot-high National Flag is coming up in Gulmarg

The Indian Army in collaboration with the Solar Industry India is installing a 100-foot-high ‘Iconic National Flag’ at the famous ski-resort of Gulmarg in Jammu and Kashmir which would be the highest Tricolour in the Valley. The foundation stone for the iconic national flag was laid on Sunday by Dagger Division General Officer Commanding (GoC) Major General Virendra Vats along with Bollywood actor-producer Arbaaz Khan and actress Vidya Balan.

The official said it would be the highest Indian national flag in the Kashmir valley flying at an altitude of approximately 9,000 feet. The site is expected to become another toursit attraction, among the snow-clad mountains of Kashmir. A replica of the flag was presented by Ramit Arora of Solar Industry India to the GOC 19 Infantry Division to mark the occasion. “This development is in sync with the large number of endeavours that have contributed to peace and stability in Kashmir,” General Officer Commanding 19 Infantry Division of Kashmir, Major General Virendra Vats said. “We hope to continue to inspire to serve this nation. I would like to thank our partner Solar Group for this patriotic endeavour. Thank Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapoor and Arbaz Khan who have chosen to grace this occasion,” Mr Vats said.
