Ha Noi Flag Tower was built in 1812 during the reign of Emperor Gia Long and is considered a sacred symbol of the capital city. It is composed of three tiers and a pyramid-shaped tower, an inner spiral staircase leading to where the Vietnamese flag hangs at its top. With four doors in the second tier, the tower is additionally lit by 36 flower- and six fan-shaped windows. It is the most intact and the largest historical work in the complex of the Thang Long Royal Citadel historical sites.
