#1488 Azerbaijan

National Flag Square (AzerbaijaniDövlət Bayrağı Meydanı) is a large city square off Neftchiler Avenue in BayilBaku, Azerbaijan. A flag measuring 70 by 35 metres (230 by 115 feet) flies on a pole 162 m (531 ft) high. The flagpole was confirmed as the world's tallest by the Guinness Book of Records, but was soon overtaken by the 165 m Dushanbe Flagpole in Tajikistan. Both flagpoles were built by the same American affiliated company, Trident Support.

Baku Crystal Hall (AzerbaijaniBakı Kristal Zalı) is an indoor arena in BakuAzerbaijan. Located on the coast of Baku near National Flag Square, construction of the arena began in August 2011 and finished in April 2012—in time for it to host its first major event, the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Thank you, Leyla !
