"Tall Herman" is a tower attached to the parliament of Estonia and the flag is the most important one in the country, because whatever flag is hoisted there every morning, shows who is the ruling force in Estonia (Estonia has had many occupiers). It stands at 95m from sea level (Tallinn is a seaside city).



Bonus: Footage from 1989 when Soviet rule was falling and for the first time in 50 years, the Estonian flag was hoisted there again: http://www.filmi.arhiiv.ee/fis/index...che=1365752798

There aren't any really large flag poles in Argentina, but these are the largest I know of:
