The Sarawak flagpole will be the tallest flagpole structure in South East Asia, and it was announced in January 2023.
According to an article by the Borneo Post, construction on the flagpole has already begun and it will be 99-meter in length once completed, and is said to weigh a tonne.
The funding of the flagpole is said to be a private sector project, with the pole itself located between the Sarawak Legislative Assembly (DUN) complex and Fort Margherita.
The Kuching North City Commission (DBKU) is the implementing agency for the project and KKB Engineering Berhad is the design and build contractor.
Once completed, the flagpole will be four metres taller than Malaysia’s current tallest flagpole which is located at Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur.
It was reported also that the flagpole cost RM30 million to build and is considered a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project by the private entity.
