A world record-breaking Indian flag is set to be painted in Hounslow to celebrate the anniversary of the country's independence.
Around 10,000 people are expected to gather at the Indian Gymkhana Club on Sunday August 21 to celebrate Indian Independence Day.
One of the highlights of the festivities will be an attempt to create the world's largest wood block painting, in the form of the Indian flag.
The artist Jignesh Patel, who is coordinating the record attempt, has previously broken records for the largest footprint and fingerprint paintings, and for the largest painting made by people using their mouths - which he set in Feltham in 2013.
The record for the largest wood block painting stands at 220sqm. Mr Patel aims to obliterate that mark by creating a 500sqm flag - with the help of volunteers, who will receive a certificate recognising their contribution.
"We need as many people as possible to help as the wood block is only 2inX2in so millions of prints will be required to break the record," he said.
"We've already had more than 1,500 people register to participate in the record attempt, but the more help we have the better."
If successful, it could be the second world record to be broken in Hounslow that weekend, with plans to stage the largest ever ultimate frisbee game in Lampton Park on Saturday August 20.
The Independence Day celebrations at the club in Thornbury Road, Osterley , are due to run from 10am until 4.30pm.
There will be dancing and other entertainment during the day, along with free food and drink, at the event which is being thrown by the UK Asian Business Council.
Money raised on the day will go towards the centenary celebrations at the Indian Gymkhana Club and the Swachh Bharat campaign to clean up India.
Indian Independence Day is celebrated on August 15 to celebrate the country's freedom from British control.
The party is free to attend but visitors must register in advance via the UKABC website.
