“Not exactly a great 'site' but impressive nonetheless”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

It's a large flag tower in front of the citadel, you'll inadvertantly come across it as you go to the citadel. It's pretty impressive and nice to get a photo at, but you can't go into it the building so don't expect to spend more than ten minutes here

“It's a flag tower but it's huge!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

It really is quite impressive, but there's no interactive tour or anything like that. It's huge and metal and has a huge red flag at the top. Pretty at night!

“Just in front of the Citadel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

The Flag tower is just a landmark in front of the Citadel Noon Gate. You will see it as you walk the grounds of the Noon gate. It is majestic and has 3 levels representing the Gods, Earth and Humans.

“Big”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Nothing special as you cannot get up close or go inside but you will go past it when you enter the Imperial city. The citadel is a very long walk around so we hired bikes which was enjoyable as not so hectic as Ha Noi.

“Local sporting space”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

The Flag Tower is one of the symbolic (but a bit boring) landmarks of the city, but just huge flag and its base basically. There is actually some meaning for three layers of the tower base like earth, people, and sky (if I remember correctly), but that's it.

Local young folks are playing sports like football in front of the Flag Tower, so it might be interesting to see these people in the early evening (4-6pm) or weekends.
