There is no flag on National Flag Square but our tour guide explained us it is because of the weather. Strong winds are very often in Baku. But it was a bit disappointing however the area looks great.

There is no flag as it fell down. The cops don’t like you taking photographs and the area is barricaded off.

As we drove past this square, our driver explained that the flag was taken down to have more material added to make it the largest flag in the region, as a neighbouring country had recently taken the title - bit of friendly rivalry .. hahahaha
