The Ashgabat Flagpole, one of the tallest on Earth

The Ashgabat Flagpole is a flagpole in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. It is 133 metres (436 feet) tall,[1] making it the 5th tallest free–standing flagpole in the world. It was erected on 26 June 2008. It has since been surpassed in height by the 160 m (525 ft) Panmunjeom flagpole (North Korea), the 162 m (531 ft) National Flagpole (Azerbaijan), the 165 m (541 ft) Dushanbe Flagpole (Tajikistan), and since October 2014 the 170 m (558 ft) Jeddah Flagpole (Saudi Arabia). Despite the flagpole's height it is not the largest structure in Ashgabat.
