We are proud to have recently completed a major retrofit and refurbishment of our first World Record Monumental™ Flagpole located near the Heritage Village site on the breakwater in Abu Dhabi. When it was originally constructed by us in 2001, this flagpole was the World’s Tallest Flagpole (Freestanding) at a height of 123 meters as recognized by Guinness World Records®.
