Lovely place for a casual walk (weather permitting). It is just one place where you come and you can escape from stress. So relieving.

No flag

There is no flag on National Flag Square but our tour guide explained us it is because of the weather. Strong winds are very often in Baku. But it was a bit disappointing however the area looks great.

There is no flag as it fell down. The cops don’t like you taking photographs and the area is barricaded off.

Baku National Flag Square does not represent the importance it really has in the state of Azerbaidjan, for which its independence was so overwhelming.
It lies on the Caspian Sea and offers interesting views of the Baku skyline. In the square you can relax from an exhausting walk.

The flag is not flying
Apr 2019 • Friends
We walked from Sahil metro to the flag pole and were mystified why we could not see it flying. A nice policeman guarding the base told us the flag is CLOSED until next year because of "Raymond" - we are not sure who Raymond is though!!! Lovely walk, but remember to carry water🍷🍷

Flag removed for safety
Apr 2019 • Business
Flag has temporarily been removed due to the integrity of the pole structure being unsafe, due to be replaced May 2019 (estimated), still plenty to see around the boulevard.

Local people told that Goverment took the flag for recovering and it will be there soon, but place is beautiful and very clean. Good for walking at night time.
