At one time it was the tallest in the world at 541ft (165m). The flagpole is located in front of the Palace of Nations in Dushanbe.

Big flag on a very tall pole. Arguments about its ranking on the flag pole scale; I don't think it's the tallest in the world...but in all fairness it's the biggest I've ever seen. Set in a nice park.

The problem with big flagpoles is you need a big flag and a strong wind for it to flutter. I visited in the winter and the place was a bit dull but in summer the place would I expect be a great place to hang...More

To be admired from the distance. The general public cannot access the park that houses the flagpole. But that's no problem as it's so tall you can spot it from all over town....apparently the flag itself weights one ton.

It is apparently the tallest flagpole in central Asia. You can't miss it and the flag is enormous. Why not?

Centered in a lovely park the National flag is enormous. Lovely area for a stroll, trees, the lake with paddle boats and gardens.

This is the world's tallest flagpole. Apparently. Not much more to say about it really, except it's got nothing to do with flags, and everything to do with political egos.

It is one of the sights of Dushanbe but I wouldn't walk a meter extra for this. Its the second tallest flagpole in the world, but even then: who cares? Tajikistan had much better things to offer than this.

Apparently the tallest flagpole in the world. Sort of impressive, but if you miss it I wouldn't be too stressed.

This is close to a number of other places. It is next to the big palace. Might as well visit if you go to statue of Somoni and Rudaki Park.
