LAHORE - Pakistani students broke the Guinness world record on Friday by painting the world's largest canvas to mark the Pakistan Day. The painting of the Pakistani flag, measuring almost 42,000 square feet was made by 1300 male and female students at the National Hockey Stadium.
The event, organised by the Message Welfare Trust (MWT), was a part of the Street Art Competition -- a campaign initiated to remove wall chalking from the walls of the metropolis and to repaint them with pictures depicting the culture and traditions of Pakistan. According to the organisers, 260 teams participated in the record-breaking attempt, which were selected from among 500 teams that participated in the earlier street art competitions. Each team was assigned to paint a certain image on a 16×11 canvas out of a total of 42,000sq ft canvas, as part of the large painting that showed the national flag.
Different teams painted different images, depicting country's cultural traditions, landscape, important buildings, heritage, national symbols and leaders.
