The Burj Khalifa in Dubai will be lighted up with the colors of the Philippine flag tonight in celebration of the country 121st Independence Day.
The Philippine Embassy in the United Arab Emirates Monday evening announced that the world’s tallest building will be illuminated with red, white, and blue colors with yellow accents at 9:40 pm.
In an interview with Gulf News, Consul-General Paul Raymund Cortes described the lighting of Burj Khalifa into Philippine flag colors as a “monumental occasion” which “manifests the collective pride and joy of the Filipino community in the UAE and their appreciation to the multicultural community in the country for welcoming them in this diverse society.”
The colors of the Philippine flag will also illuminate the Dubai Festival City Mall from June 13 to 15 as part of their light and musical fountain show called “Imagine”.
