At 60 meters high the flag pole on the Donkin Reserve in Port Elizabeth is the tallest flag pole in South Africa while the flag flying from it is the biggest South African flag in the world. The flag is about the size of a tennis court and usually when I say it people look at me funny, look up at it and then shake their heads. Remember that the flag is flying 60 meters up so it doesn't look that big from the ground. A video was uploaded on YouTube recently showing the flag being lowered in a very strong wind and as the flag reached ground level you can actually get a better idea of how big it really is. Plus its quite amusing watching the soldiers on duty try and get it into its container.
