Christian friends of Israel think BIG
Well, one friend of Jews and the Jewish State thinks big, anyway.
The record for the world's largest flag now belongs to an Israeli banner produced by a Filipino evangelical Christian.
If you are thinking of making one like it, here are its dimensions: it is 2,165 feet long and 330 feet wide and weighs 5.7 tons. Make sure you buy a very large quantity of blue and white cloth.
Filipino entrepreneur Grace Galindez-Gupana said she decided two years ago to produce a giant Israeli flag as a testament to her love for Israel and the Jewish people and as a celebration of 50 years of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Israel.
"God spoke to me in thunder and lightning," Galindez-Gupana said. "The Lord said, 'Make the flag of Israel, the standard of my people.'"
"This is a tall order," she said, breaking down in tears.
Not just tall, but wide and long, too.
