The city of Beirut set a new Guiness World Record on Sunday, for the most number of flags waved in one city during a 24 hour period.

Beirut residents waved a total of 26,852 flags in this astounding and ambitious feat organised by Beirut Alive, surpassing the village of Waterloo, in the state of New York, which set the previous record by waving 25,599 flags.

Lebanese MP Rola Al-Tabash, who raised the flag that officially broke the record, said, "This national initiative shows that Beirut has said that there should not be any flag over the capital other than the Lebanese flag."

Beirut successfully completed this monumental accomplishment on its first attempt, entering the Guiness Book of World Records under the watchful eye of Guinness World Records Monitoring Supervisor, Ahmed Jabr.

"I can confirm they are all achieved and then we have a new record title here which is 26,852 flags achieved by Beirut," declared Jabr.
