Mohammad Amin Saleem of Lahore's old quarters completed
the ring with an inner diameter of 85 cm in August. It is made
of 97.83 percent pure silver.
The Guinness Book of World Records has issued a
certificate to Saleem, Dawn newspaper reported today.
Saleem said it took him and his 10 workers 70 days to
make the ring.
"I had earlier prepared a 74.6-kg ring having the flags
of 210 countries but it was not included in the Guinness
Book," he said.
"Then I decided to make another ring and got exact
specifications from the Guinness to ensure a place for my
creation in the book," Saleem said.
He asked authorities to give him an opportunity to
display the ring at exhibitions across the world to project a
soft image of Pakistan.
