Jeddah Mayor Hani Abu Ras and Mohammed Abdul Latif Jameel, president of Abdul Latif Jameel Community Initiatives (ALJCI), signed an agreement to create the world's tallest and biggest flag in Jeddah.
The Jeddah municipality has dedicated Tariq Bin Ziyad Roundabout (previously Al-Sofon Roundabout), at the intersection of King Abdullah Street and Al-Andalus Street to host the anticipated flag, taking into consideration the prominent location of this roundabout.
The flag will be the start point for travelers to and from Makkah, and the end of King Abdullah Street and the beginning of King Abdul Aziz Street (Al-Andalus). The location is in proximity of strategic centers in Jeddah, such as Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Jeddah municipality, Jeddah Central Corniche, which hosts the tallest fountain in the world.
Abu Ras appreciated ALJCI for its initiatives, saying that this project will be an important landmark in Jeddah.
