There is also another one in Mexico City from memory - in the western suburbs along the orbital freeway.

It always struck me as an unusual place for a large flag.




Then of course there is the one in the central square.

highest flag pole in PHILIPPINES.

The Independence Flagpole, standing at 107 metres (351 ft), is the highest flagpole in the Philippines. On this spot in front of Rizal Monument, at 9:15am July 4, 1946, the full independence of the Republic of the Philippines was proclaimed as authorized by the United States President Harry S. Truman. Next to the flagpole, a grand Independence Grandstand, designed by architect Juan M. Arellano, was built just for the occasion.

I can't resist the feeling, that many of these countries with giant flags and poles try to compensate something. :-|

As smaller one
The "Fahne der Einheit" (lit. Flag of unity) in Berlin. It stands at the "Platz der Republik" in front of the Reichstag. The flag was hoisted at midnight of 3rd October 1990 to celebrate the reunification. The pole is 28.5 meters high and the flag measures 6x10 meters.
Due the fact, that the flag itself is regarded as monument, it is not half-masted on the determined dates or other special incidents, even if the smaller ones besides or the ones on top of the Reichstag are so. Since 1990 it has been half-masted only two times: on 11th September 2001 on the occasion of the terrorist attacks and on 26th April 2002, when the Erfurt school massacre with 16 dead people took place.

As a child I was alway very impressed by this flagpole in Luxembourg. But compared to other flags in this thread it's not so large:
