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.

  • Don't go especially to Baku to see worlds second biggest because, I don't know how, sometimes it is removed!!!  more »
  • There is no flag on National Flag Square but our tour guide explained us it is because of the weather. Strong winds are very often in Baku. But it was a bit disappointing however the area looks great.  more »
