As Kenya marked its 56th Jamhuri Day on Thursday, Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, standing about 830 metres, also joined in the celebrations. 


The day took on an international recognition after the colours of the Kenyan flag lit up the tall building in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.


The decision by the owner of the luxurious tower left many Kenyans in disbelief. 

Some  thought the country might have paid for the display, but the owners always dedicate a few hours to different countries’ flags across the world to feature on it.


As Kenya marked its independence anniversary, it was a great honour by Burj Khalifa, making the country feel on the top of the world. 


Uganda had its flag on the same tower in October 2019, when the country marked its independence day. 


Advertising on Burj Khalifa costs up to Ksh6.9 million for three minutes during weekdays and Ksh9.6 million during weekends, according to Arabian Business.


 Google also joined Kenyans in celebrating Jamhuri Day by embedding a doodle with the colours of the Kenyan flag on its search engine.
