VLADIVOSTOK, July 7 (Itar-Tass) - A living image of the Russian national flag that 26,904 residents of Vladivostok have formed on Sunday broke a record of Pakistan (24,200 people) for the number of its participants and will be put on the Guinness World Records, Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday, who arrived from London for the purpose, said on Sunday.
A magnificent flash mob “I Love Vladivostok” began at 14:00 local time (07:00 Moscow time) on Sunday on the Zolotoy Bridge of the city. As many as 12,000 participants in the action have formed the saying “I Love Vladivostok”, and about 27,000 Vladivostok residents were keeping high in the hands red, blue and white flags, forming the Russian national flag for five minutes on another part of the bridge.
