The largest flag in the world

At the southwest edge of the island, very near the lighthouse of Keri and above the Myzithres islets, a flagpole 50 meters high has been built, on which the largest raised flag in the world waves; it was certified for the Guinness Book of World Records on May 20, 2007. Visible from 20 miles away, 670 square meters of the blue and white Greek flag are waving with the blue sky, the green landscape of Keri, and the calm and sometimes troubled Ionian Sea in the background. With the sound created by this huge fabric in the wind causing awe, by itself it constitutes one more reason to visit western Zakynthos.
