World’s highest tower will showcase Afghanistan’s flag
On the occasion of Afghanistan’s 100th
Independence Day anniversary, the world’s highest tower, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa
or Khalifa tower of the United Arabic Emirate is set to showcase Afghanistan
three color – black, red, and green – flag, said Feroz Bashari, spokesperson
for the arrangement committee of Afghanistan 100th Independence Day
Mr. Bashari, however, did not mention when the tower would
showcase the national flag of Afghanistan.
In the meantime, Google, a renowned globally known searching engine, has showcased an animated flag of Afghanistan across the south Asian nation to mark the 100th anniversary of Afghanistan independence.
This comes while on Sunday, August 18, the Afghan government
put off holding the 100th anniversary of Afghanistan Independence
Day to pay a tribute to the victims of a wedding hall bombing that took place
on Saturday night, killing 63 and wounding 182 others.
However on Monday morning, President Ghani addressed the nation and commemorated the Independence Day anniversary in a short visit in the newly rebuild Darul Aman palace, where the ceremony was scheduled to be celebrated.
