SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Utah) - What will hopefully become the Guiness World Record holder for the largest signed flag was revealed on Thursday for the first time.

Colonial Flag in Sandy is making a flag for the USO's Every Moment Counts program.

The center panael is only 60 feet by 90 feet, but with extra panels, it will eventually be 90 by 120 feet.

With the addition of over 34,000 signatures, it should break the record.  The flag will actually have space for over 200,000 signatures.

Utahns will be able to add their signatures to the flag during the dedication ceremony of the Utah Freedom Memorial on May 16.
