TAWANG: In a historic function, the National Tricolour mounted on a 60 feet Mast was unfurled at Tawang War Memorial on Tuesday.
The 60 feet monumental flag hoisted at such lofty height in Tawang would not be lowered at the sunset as it is adequately illuminated even during the night with high mast lights.
The High Mast Flag will continue to motivate and inspire present as well as future generations of Armed Forces and Local Population to dedicate themselves to nation-building.
