A giant kite with an area of 2,605 square meters debuted Friday during an international kite-flying festival in Baotou, a city of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

The kite, shaped as a Chinese knot, was made by a kite-flying team from China's Tianjin.

"I brought the kite here and flew it successfully," said Liu Tao, a member of Tianjin Heige kite-flying team. "It is five square meters larger than the one we showed in Shandong last time, which had been regarded as the largest of its kind around China," he added.

A total of 33 kite-flying teams from the United States, Macao as well as China's Shanghai, Shanxi, Jiangsu, Shandong, Liaoning, Inner Mongolia and others competed in categories including stunt kite contest and kite-flying exhibition event.

The three-day kite-flying festival, which started on Friday, was sponsored by Chinese Kite Flying Association.
