The world’s tallest building Dubai’s Burj Khalifa lights up with the image of Queen Elizabeth II
Dubai’s Burj Khalifa was used to pay tribute to the British monarch who died on Thursday, September 8.
The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, located in Dubai, was lit on Sunday night with the image of Queen Elizabeth II, who died on Thursday, September 8, in order to pay tribute worldwide to the monarch who ruled the United Kingdom for 70 years.
This joins the countless tributes that have been paid around the world to the Queen, who died at the age of 96 and left millions to mourn her passing.
In a striking image, the Burj Khalifa, which “measures” around 822 meters high, “covered” itself with the British flag, showing the solidarity of the Middle East with the United Kingdom.
In Germany, the iconic Brandenburg Gate in Berlin was also lit up to mourn the death of the monarch. In the United States, the Empire State Building turned purple, while in Australia, an image of the Queen was displayed at the Opera House.
On the throne since 1957, Elizabeth II had been inspiring care for months. Her Majesty has been cancelling engagements since late last year, claiming “mobility problems”. In the celebration of her Platinum Jubilee, officially celebrated in June, the Queen also missed some events.
