A Special Republic Day for Trivandrum

The biggest tricolor Kerala has ever seen was proudly hoisted on one of India's tallest flagpoles in one of India's proudest cities on January 26, 2013 by the Chief Minister and Dr Shashi Tharoor, who was one of the two people behind the project, the other being fellow MP, founder of the Flag Foundation and billionaire industrialist Naveen Jindal (who was also present at the occasion).

Given its truly spectacular location, at the top of the hill where the historic Kanakakkunnu Palace is located and right in the very heart of the Capital, the towering 200 foot flag will not not only be an inspiration to the citizens of our beautiful city but a sure-fire tourist attraction. Thankfully, it will also be flood-lit at night (provided KSEB spares it the ignominy of load-shedding!).

And of course, here are a few spectacular shots of the monumental national colors.
