National Flag Square, Baku
(3.7/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • An impressive sight! The height of the flagpole, Flagstaff 220tonn weight 162metra, flag size 2450 sq ft, fabric weight 350 kg! The construction has been spent 32 million dollars!

  • Walking along the Boulevard, sooner or later you will reach the State flag square. To the flag special attitude here-and the flag itself is absolutely gigantic. In my opinion, the most beautiful view on the square opens from a point approximately halfway between the Plaza of the flag and a Ferris wheel. Hence the same offer and a very beautiful view of the city, which will see the Ferris wheel.
