A new flagpole erected in the Tajik capital, Dushanbe, this week looks set to enter the Guinness Book of Records.

A 165-meter-high flagpole will hoist the country's three-color flag, measuring 60 meters by 30 meters, in front of the newly built Palace of the Nation in downtown Dushanbe.

The flag will be officially raised on September 9 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of independence.

The cost of the extravagant project has not been made public. But it has been reported that a 162-meter flagpole in Azerbaijan -- previously the tallest flagpole in the world -- cost over $30 million.
