Guinness Certificate for Record of World's Largest Flags
It took four hectares – roughly the size of 3 football fields – to accommodate the showcasing of the Israeli and Philippine Flags at Israel’s Masada Airfield last November 25. Created by Filipina businessman Grace Gupana, the gargantuan flags were unfurled by hundreds of volunteers composed of Filipino caregivers and Israeli youths. They were joined by Philippine Embassy to Israel Charge d’Affaires Gilberto G.B. Asuque and Israel’s Tourism Director General Shaul Zemach.

The Phil and Israel Flags was a generous contribution of Mrs Gupana to the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Establishment of Friendship and Diplomatic Relations between our country and the State of Israel. The occasion was even made more special - and the records, official - as the Guiness World Records Officials flew in from the UK to certify both flags as the largest in the world.
