Landmark · Tourist Spot
Admire Jeddah Flagpole, which, as the name suggests, has since 2014 held the world record for the world’s tallest flagpole. A flag of Saudi Arabia sits perched on top of the gargantuan, 170 m (558 ft) tall steel pole, which weighs 500 tons and towers over King Abdullah Square. Equally impressive, the massive flag boasts almost 50 m (162 ft) in length and weighs a reported 570 kg (1,260 lb).
