Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest human image of an anchor; it involved 6,000 participants and was achieved by the Angkla Party-List and University of Antique (both Philippines) at the University of Antique, Siba-Lom, Philippines, on 19 January 2016.
The previous Guinness world record was set just 10 days ago by 1148 students at Kenilworth School in the United Kingdom.
