Tailors aim to stitch 'longest Indian flag'

 A team of tailors from the Vande Mataram Trust has aimed to stitch the ‘longest Indian flag ever made’ in 24 hours to find a place in the Limca Book of Records.

J Vinod Kumar, managing trustee and secretary, Vande Mataram Trust, said that a team of 16-18 tailors would stitch the flag with a 3,000-metre cloth live at the Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in the City  on November 7.

The team from the Limca Book of Records will make an assessment of the work done.
Tailors have been given special machine stitching training for the purpose, Vinod explained.   

Display on November 26

The flag will be on display on November 26 as part of a programme to pay tribute to victims of the 26/11 attacks.

Students from various schools and colleges may be called to participate in the event, Kumar said.   

The present Limca Record for the longest Indian flag is held by a team of 12 tailors from Akola in Maharashtra, who stitched a 144x216 feet flag in six days.
