Nice set and a big, beautiful flag at that.
The largest flag & flagpole I've ever seen was at the DMZ in Korea. From Guard Post Callier in the south, you could see the North Korean flag standing in Peace Village at 525 ft. tall and the flag weighing in at a whopping 595 lbs. According to wiki, it's the fourth largest flag in the world.
