The Indian tricolour will be displayed every hour for UAE residents to admire and enjoy, according to the Dubai-based real estate development company Emaar.

"The Indian flag will be showcased on Burj Khalifa tonight every hour from 7.15 pm to 11.15 pm," an Emaar representative was quoted as saying by the Khaleej Times.

The light show will coincide with Modi's second state visit to the UAE. Modi last visited the country in August 2015.

On Saturday evening, landmarks in Abu Dhabi and Dubai also lit up to the colours of the Indian flag. Abu Dhabi's Adnoc headquarters and Marina Mall and the Dubai Frame lit up in the Tricolour.
