Burj Khalifa’s display of Pakistan’s flag has upset some residents
The Burj Khalifa displayed both the Indian and Pakistani flags on last week, to celebrate both the countries’ Independence Days, but some expats are not happy about how Pakistan's flag was displayed.
Thousands of people had attended to see the display of both flags. Videoes on Twitter went viral with people quickly responding about the orientation of the flags.
The flag was displayed in this way last year and earlier this year, but in 2017 the flag’s white strip was at the bottom and the crescent was facing upwards.
Many Twitter users suggested that if a flag is ‘upside down’ it means the country is in ‘distress’.
Ah at least it was meant to be a nice gesture!
