Burj Khalifa turns red, white and blue in honor of the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II


As Queen Elizabeth II of England turns 94 on Tuesday, Dubai lit the tallest tower in the world in the color of Union Jack–red, white and blue.

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, there was no gun salute and the bells of Westminster Abbey did not ring out.

But Dubai made sure Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday is never going to be unnoticed.
