The huge Indian flag (108ft X 72 ft) on the tallest flag mast (292 feet) considered to be a matter of pride at Hyderabad is turning out to be a flop show after all.
The flag made of polyster is unable to withstand the pressure of the air at that height. The result is that already three such flags have been brought down due to tears and have been sent for repairs. It is being discussed that such a project needs to be considered based on the science of the matter.
Experts belonging to the field of Physics, according to a report in Time of India, said that there is abnormal pressure exerted on the flag’s surface, and it faces mechanical force of the wind, which is not again uniform pressure, but changes frequently. Neither the force is uniform nor the direction of the force, hence, the flag at such a height, is in grave danger from the natural force of the wind. The result is evident and for every one to see.
The flag has not been designed to handle heavy wind flow, and at least now scientific help and approach need to be adopted. It’s not even a month and the flag has been brought down at least thrice – not a practical approach.
