National Flag Square, Baku

3.8
#11 of 31 in Sightseeing in Baku
Landmark Tourist Spot
Take a turn around National Flag Square, a spacious seafront plaza dominated by a massive flagpole. Designed by David Chambers and completed in 2010, the 162 m (531 ft) standard ranks among the tallest in the world, and boasts an enormous flag of Azerbaijan visible from almost anywhere in the city. You can reach the square on a long, relaxing walk along the waterfront, but the flagpole area usually remains closed to the general public. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Baku holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the National Flag Square and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • this flag is located in the best point of Caspian Sea because there is wind`s speed at that point is very high and could raise the flag which it`s size is 150 square meter.  more »
  • In the evening around all very nicely illuminated, square, Crystal Hall, playground itself with the flag. I advise you to walk! For those who find it difficult to go along the promenade in the direction of the square flag run trailers

  • Azerbaijanis are very nationalists their flag is exposed almost everywhere and of course on public buildings. This then is huge you see from all parts of town and pass on this square during your tour

Where to stay in Baku

Baku's emphasis on architectural diversity--and its fondness for constructions that put all previous buildings to shame--has yielded a range of accommodations. Look no further than the waterfront high-rises for contemporary luxury, or take a peek at the more storied surrounding boulevards for 19th-century class, with grand hotels and stylish boutiques set in Baroque and neoclassical buildings. A smattering of budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses lies throughout the city, particularly on side streets close to the main attractions and train stations.
