Aqaba Flagpole, Aqaba Overview

Arab Revolt Plaza is a spacious public square in Aqaba. It features the world's sixth tallest flagpole with a height of 130m. The pole stands as a symbol of the Great Arab Revolt of 1916. It has an added historical value of being the house of the revolt leader, Al Hussein Bin Ali, and is the site where the first bullet of the uprising was shot.

This massive flagpole, erected in 2004, acts as a landmark from both land and sea. One can walk there easily from the town centre, either along the beachside walkway or along the dual-carriageway road. The plaza offers scenic views of the city centre with rows of palm trees in the background and a cobblestone boardwalk with benches facing the bay. There are several restaurants surrounding the area which serve Middle Eastern cuisine.
