This giant Indian flag created in Hounslow is a world record breaker.
The 370sqm flag, which is the size of almost one-and-a-half tennis courts, is the largest painting to be created entirely using wooden blocks. It smashed the previous record of 220sqm.
More than 3,000 volunteers painted the flag, which is composed of over a million prints, at the Indian Gymkhana Club, in Thornbury Road, Osterley .
Jignesh Patel, who organised the world record attempt, said more than 60 litres of paint had been used to create the giant flag.
Giant flag to be used as a shelter for educational charity
He said the huge canvas would not go to waste, as it is being sent to the Indian charity Sarva Jana Hitaya - which provides education for children living in slums - to be used as the cover for a new shelter.
The world record, which has yet to be confirmed by Guinness World Records, was the highlight of Indian Independence Day celebrations held at the venue on Sunday (August 21).
The free event, organised by the UK Asian Business Council, featured a host of other attractions, including dancing.
It was held to raise money for the centenary celebrations at the Indian Gymkhana Club and the Swachh Bharat campaign to clean up India.
It was due to be a double world record breaking weekend in Hounslow.
However, an attempt to stage the largest ever game of ultimate Frisbee , which was due to take place in Lampton Park, Hounslow, on Saturday (August 20), was postponed and a new date has yet to be arranged.
