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.
Craig Glenday presented the certificate with the reported record to Vladivostok Mayor Igor Pushkarev to the applauds of Vladivostok residents.
A grandiose action on the Zolotoy Bridge of Vladivostok, which was built across the Zolotoy Rog Bay, was dedicated to the Day of the City, which was founded on the Pacific coast of Russia 153 years ago.
