OMAN AVENUES MALL INVITES THE PEOPLE OF OMAN TO WITNESS THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORDSTM ATTEMPT FOR THE “WORLD’S LARGEST 3D NATIONAL FLAG BUILT FROM LEGO® BRICKS”
November 2017: For Oman’s 47th National Day, on 18 November this year, Oman Avenues Mall is inviting the people of Muscat and Oman to come and witness history being made, with a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS official attempt to create the World’s largest 3D national flag built exclusively from LEGO® bricks.
The flag for the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempt will be in the form of the Sultanate of Oman’s national flag, and will feature a width of 4 metres and an overall height of 2.2 metres. It will be constructed by a team of experts from STACK Events, and an estimated 168,000 LEGO® bricks will be required to complete it.
Visitors to the mall will be able to witness the team in action starting from Thursday 16th of November, and an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator will then judge the final display on 18th November.
Following the achievement of this GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title, the 3D national flag will be inaugurated as part of the Sultanate of Oman’s 47th National Day celebrations. Representatives from both the Oman Ministry of Tourism and Ministry of Education will be present for the inauguration ceremony, along with Oman Avenues Mall’s senior management. The flag will then be left on display at the mall for all to see.
Commenting on the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS official attempt, Mr. Gogi George, Oman Avenues Mall and LuLu Group International General Manager, Development & Leasing said: “National Day, on 18th November, is a very special time in the Sultanate of Oman, as we celebrate His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said’s birthday, as well as the great vision and guidance that he has had for the nation of Oman. Oman Avenues Mall is honoured to be able to celebrate the day with this exciting GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS official attempt, where the people of Oman can come and witness history being made with the creation of the world’s largest 3D national flag – in the form of the Sultanate of Oman’s national flag – built exclusively from LEGO® bricks.”
Luke Reveruzzi, Creative Director, STACK Events – the expert team responsible for building the flag – said: “We are excited to be working with Oman Avenues Mall and LuLu Group International, and attempting such an amazing record for the first time.”
On 18th November, the inauguration for the official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempt for the largest 3D national flag sculpture built exclusively from LEGO® bricks will take place in the Oman Avenues Mall main atrium at 11h00am.
There will also be several 47th National Day-themed festivities on the go throughout the day, including music performances by a traditional Omani band from 19h00pm – 20h00pm. On the final day, Oman Avenues Mall will also be handing out free gifts and souvenirs to visitors.
The official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempt for the largest 3D national flag sculpture built exclusively from LEGO® bricks is set to be a highlight of the Oman Avenues Mall ‘Oman, My Heart’ campaign, which kicked off on 12th October, and which is scheduled to run until 30th November.
The campaign is a celebration of the Sultanate of Oman’s 47th National Day, and invites kids between the ages of 6 and 16 years to come and ‘Play, Learn, and Celebrate’ around a giant tree-shaped play area installation in the mall’s main atrium – where they can immerse themselves in a world of artwork activities; LEGO® brick workshops; Jenga building block stations for families – and other creative activities. Entry is free, and all kids that participate receive a free LEGO® gift.
Mr. Gogi George, Oman Avenues Mall and LuLu Group International General Manager, Development & Leasing added that: “The platform for the kids’ play area is shaped as a giant tree, which we chose as a symbolic representation of the strength and progress of the youth of Oman – and their potential for growth as they engage in the creative activities organised for them by Oman Avenues Mall.”
‘Oman, My Heart’ daily timings are 17h00pm – 21h30pm from Sunday to Thursday (excluding Wednesday). Kids and families in Oman can find out more about ‘Oman, My Heart’ at www.omanavenuesmall.om and also follow the campaign on social media via the hashtags #OmanMyHeart and #OmanAvenuesMall
