Kuwait's biggest flag flies high across Doha sky
December 29, 2018, 8:30 am

Kuwait added yet another Guinness World Records' accolade under its belt when three freefall skydivers managed to hold a 63­square meter Kuwaiti flag while on a 13,000­feet altitude on Friday here.

Representatives from Guinness World Records will honor the trio during a special ceremony in Kuwait next Sunday, said Army Major Nasser Fawaz Al­Sabah; one of the team's members, in a statement to KUNA. The other two are Staff Lieutenant Colonel Fahad Al­Yaqoub and Commander Salim Al­Mail.

The record­breaking jump took place in Skydive Qatar; the world­class skydiving facility that integrates advanced training programs with the enjoyment of skydiving. On what drove the team to pursue such endeavor, Major Al­Sabah said it was to prove that Kuwaiti youth are always up to the challenge.

He further pointed out that it was a personal project that took two years in the making, while the special material for the flag was manufactured in Spain. He dedicated the achievement to the Kuwaiti leadership and people.
