Bolivia: Navy displays 'world's biggest flag' in territorial dispute with Chile

The Bolivian navy displayed a 200km-long (124 miles) flag along a highway in the Andes connecting the cities of La Paz and Oruro, on Saturday, to support their aim to reclaim sea access for their country.

SOT, Daniel Alanoca, Bolivian citizen (Spanish): "The 'banderazo' means the union of our entire country, of a multitude of men, women and children who today come to tell the whole world that the coast has always belonged to Bolivia."

SOT, Mercedes Marquez, Bolivian citizen (Spanish): "Bolivia was born with the sea and the sea is ours, this is an example, worldwide (for the world), for the exit of the sea, for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren to see that we have fought the claims for our beloved coast and the sea."

SOT, Evo Morales, President of Bolivia (Spanish): "Today, in 2018 we are prepared with historical and economic legal arguments, to hold the final oral hearings of the case in which we will demonstrate to the international court of justice and to all the inhabitants of the planet that our cause is just, reasonable, and solvent, since there is no more logical and viable request to guarantee a good faith negotiation with a sister country, a negotiation between two neighbours in which we all will win. "

SOT, Evo Morales, President of Bolivia (Spanish): "This flag, the largest flag in the world elaborated by the hands of all the sisters and brothers, with effort and commitment, is also a living testimony of our determination to end more than a century of enclosure and to achieve a new era of peace and progress for the two peoples predestined to a common future."
