The Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the Adnoc Tower in Abu Dhabi were lit up with the Indian tricolour flag on August 15, in honour and celebration of India’s 74th year of independence from the British rule.
The UAE displayed the Indian Flag from the world’s tallest and most famous skyscraper at approximately 8:45pm on Saturday night for a good 5-10 minutes.
The stunning video was shared on social media by the official handle of the Burj Khalifa itself.
“To celebrate the seventy-fourth Indian Independence Day, we illuminate the #Khalifa Tower with the colors of the Indian flag to wish them continued prosperity, peace and freedom (sic),” the translation of the caption read.
The video shows the tower illuminated with the colours of the Indian flag, and we have to say the scene looks absolutely stunning and grand. After the official handle of the Burj Khalifa tower tweeted the video, Burj Khalifa started trending in India and netizens praised them for celebrating the Indian Independence.
