Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, has marked its sixth anniversary by releasing its first dedicated postage stamp. The commemorative stamp, launched in partnership with Emirates Post, depicts Burj Khalifa rising majestically above Downtown Dubai at sunset in all its resplendent glory.

Ahmad Al Falasi, Executive Director -- Group Operations, Emaar Properties, said: "Burj Khalifa is a global icon and the pride of our nation. One of the world's most visited tourist attractions, it is also a compelling testament to the can-do ability of Dubai and the city's focus on promoting global partnerships. An architectural marvel that pushes the boundaries of engineering and construction, Burj Khalifa has become one of the most photographed monuments in the past six years. The launch of the commemorative stamp is a fitting tribute to the vision behind Burj Khalifa and the years of hard work by thousands of professionals around the world that went into building it."

Fahad Al Hosani, acting CEO of Emirates Post Group, said, "Emirates Post Group is delighted to issue stamps on Burj Khalifa, which is a symbol of pride and the pinnacle of international achievement for the UAE. For six years, Burj Khalifa has been in the international spotlight and we are very happy to commemorate the 6th anniversary of its opening through these beautiful stamps."

The stamp, now officially released, will also be on sale at retail kiosks at At the Top, the Burj Khalifa observation deck. They have been issued in denomination of AED 3, along with a souvenir sheet and first day cover.
