This is not the first time the skyscraper has borne the colors of other nations. The Indian flag was projected on the structure during PM Narendra Modi’s visit in 2017. Following the 2017 Manchester terror attack, a UK flag was projected in a show of solidarity with the victims of the attack. The image projectors have also been used for commercial purposes.
