O.P. Jindal Global University & the Flag Foundation of India sets World Record

Sonipat, 19 March, 2024: In a record-breaking event, O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) in collaboration with the Flag Foundation of India (FFI), created the largest human waving national flag surpassing all previous Guinness World Records. The event saw the certified participation of 7368 students and staff of JGU which was endorsed by the Officials of the Guinness World Records organization. It was a momentous occasion as all participants enthusiastically gathered in the colours of the Indian flag to mark this unique occasion which included students from all schools and institutes of JGU, staff, faculty, and other officials.

The Adjudicator for the Guinness World Records Mr. Rishi Nath, who was present on the campus to certify the event said, “I am delighted to announce that O.P. Jindal Global University in collaboration with the Flag Foundation of India has successfully created the largest human waving flag record with 7368 enthusiastic participants. JGU & FFI is now the record holder for this activity, and I am pleased to endorse their effort that this new record will be a part of the Official Guinness Book of World Records.”

Speaking on the occasion, the Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University Prof. (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar said, “This year we mark the 15th anniversary of India’s leading private university. With more than 11,000 students and 1100+ faculty members across all Schools and Institutes, JGU has been a benchmark in transformational higher education which brings international standards of learning and knowledge creation for our students. Establishing the Guinness World Record for the largest human waving national flag is a notable event. It is indeed an occasion that befits our 15th anniversary and marks our commitment to excellence and innovation. The recognition by the Guinness World Records reinforces our commitment to building a robust India through education. The Flag Foundation of India was set up as a registered society, a non-profit body after Mr. Naveen Jindal won a decade long court battle that enabled all Indians to display our National Flag with honour and pride at their homes, offices, and factories on all days of the year.”

Prof. Dabiru Sridhar Patnaik, Registrar, O.P. Jindal Global University said, “Today marks an event which brought together the JGU community as a unified and integrated organization to achieve this landmark record. The recognition awarded by the Guinness World Record organization stands as a testament to strengthen pride in our identity as Indians and our commitment to uphold the values enshrined in the Tricolour which represent the values of Democracy, Inclusivity, Respect and Tolerance across all races, region, or religion.”
