Burj Khalifa to be lit with colours of Indian national flag to observe India's 68 Republic Day

By Wam

Dubai-based Emaar Properties Company joined on Wednesday the festivities taking place in the UAE on the occasion of the 68th Republic Day of India by lighting up Burj Khalifa’s interface with the colours of the Indian national flag.

The stunning visuals, featuring the three colours of the Indian flag, embody the deep friendship and co-operation between the people of the two countries, linked by strong cultural and commercial ties.

Emaar will present these wonderful visuals at Burj Khalifa this evening and also on Thursday, using the latest LED technology associated with the Dubai Fountain shows.

Burj Khalifa, which was developed by Emaar, is 828m high and the highest tower in the world.

The celebrations call for special attention as they coincide with the visit of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to New Delhi to participate as the chief guest of India’s Republic Day celebrations. His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed is leading a high-profile delegation, including ministers, senior officials and entrepreneurs.

Emaar Properties enjoys a strong presence in India, which is one of the world’s most important markets for the company. It has recently restructured its operations in the country to promote current projects and explore new development opportunities.
