A big flag in a roundabout. You can see it when you drive by if you don’t get hit by other cars. Do not stop to take a photo.

Easily seen from the nearby motorway and not much else to see or say about it. Great to have the largest flagpole etc etc but ho hum just part of the skyline by now

Situated in a very prominent location, this spectacular flag and flagpole can be seen from a great distance. Worth a look if you're in the area.

Driving to the corniche we passed this monster of a flag pole ,sadly no flag was flying, on returning from our visit Walahi the Saudi flag was flying !!! Al Hamdulila it's amazing to see, but dangerous to look at while driving

This is more of a landmark than a tourist attraction. We use it here to identify whatever is close by. Don't get me wrong it looks nice during the day when it's fluttering (if we're lucky and it's windy). it is not a must see...More

Obsession about height and width always been a dilemma with arab culture and people, it is a nice flag pole but as usual we can do better and spot it for tourism purpose
