But here’s a catch, it was not on some paper or on a computer, it was a giant one formed by humans!

On November 1, more than 2500 students formed a big square to form the bicolor structure. For the record-breaking attempt to form a 51-meter-long and 51-meter-wide figure, students took help from umbrellas — one white and other peach to form the variation and coded pattern. The attempt was filmed in Zhengzhou, Central China’s Henan province by students from Sias International College and a collaboration by Didi Express.

Officials from the World Record Certification Agency at work during the record-breaking attempt to create the world’s largest QR Code made by humans hand out the certificate to students.

And yes, the code was successfully scanned. While scanning it, 1 million yuan bonus was received from Didi Express, which will be handed out to the students, China Daily reported. The officials of World Record certifications were present at the event and later handed out to them the record after the code was scanned.
