President Erdoğan is getting famous in Pakistan for taking his flags from the floor of official addressing ceremonies. These are the mark-up flags to let the officials understand that where they have to stand in official photoshoots and addressing events.
Pakistan has good knots of friendship with Turkey since long and may be that is the reason that Turkeys' gesture gets highlighted most easily in between common-men of Pakistan. We also can not deny the fact that mostly Pakistanis' do not care and show the respect to Pakistani Flag but still they are most active to reserve online appreciation comments on this new trend.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is the 12th and current President of Turkey, serving since 2014. He previously served as the Prime Minister of Turkey from 2003 to 2014 and as the Mayor of İstanbul from 1994 to 1998.
President Erdoğan was greeted by Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhammedow on the first day of his visit to Turkmenistan on 7 November 2014, in Oguzkhan Presidential Palace. Before the ceremony, Erdoğan picked up both the Turkish and Turkmen flags from the ground, which had been placed to mark the spots for both presidents to stand, and put them in his pockets.
