Rourkela Gets Odisha’s Tallest Flagpole; Tricolour To Fly High Atop Soon

Rourkela: The National Flag will fly high atop the tallest flagpole in Odisha at the height of around 230 feet in Steel city Rourkela.

The tallest flagpole is being installed by the Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) at sector-6 area here.

RSP has not announced the exact date for its inauguration as ancillary work around the pole is yet to be completed.

However, the flagpole is expected to be inaugurated on the Republic Day this year.

Notably, 215-ft-tall flagpole on premises of the High Court of Orissa in Cuttack is considered to be the tallest pillar in Odisha. This is followed by the 204-foot-tall flag pillar erected by Naveen Jindal’s Flag Foundation of India in Angul.
