In an effort to raise awareness on the "quality and accessibility of education in public schools in Lebanon," a group of university students just built the world's largest notebook mosaic flag.

The American University of Beirut officially broke a Guinness World Record on May 9 after students used 60,000 notebooks to create the mosaic flag.

The student initiative is part of a project titled "Share The Flag" - and was carried out on the campus' Green Field. 

On Wednesday, an unveiling of the record-breaking flag took place.

During the event, Samer Khallouf, Head of Records Management and official adjudicator at Guinness World Records, said students "succeeded on their first attempt," in a statement.

The group of AUB students were assisted by Dr. Antoine Sabbagh, an academic supervisor at the university's business school, as well as other professors, administrators, and university staff.

The unveiling ceremony was attended by several high-level officials including President Michel Aoun, Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri, Ghattas Khoury, the country's minister of culture and of course, AUB's President Fadlo Khuri, to name a few.

The notebooks will be donated to public schools across the country

Congratulations came pouring in

"Hats off"

One word: "PROUD"
