Dubai's Burj Khalifa and Abu Dhabi's Adnoc Tower lit up with the colours of the Indian flag on Saturday night to mark the country's 74th Independence Day.

The display of the Indian flag on the world's tallest and most famous skyscraper happened at 8.45pm, highlighting the strong relations the UAE and India share.

The Consulate General of India (CGI) in Dubai tweeted a live video of the display from Downtown Dubai. It also thanked the UAE "for resonating the spirit of India on the 74th #Independence Day" and shared photos of the Burj Khalifa and Adnoc Tower glowing with the Indian Tricolour.
