12 July 2019 - The world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa was emblazoned with the colors of the Montenegrin flag in celebration of the Statehood Day of Montenegro.
The flag-inspired projection was the result of cooperation between the Embassy of Montenegro to the United Arab Emirates and the company ‘Emaar’ owned by Burj Khalifa.
“The event confirms friendly relations and good cooperation between the two countries and having in mind Burj Khalifa is one of the most popular attractions in Dubai, this was a wonderful opportunity for the promotion of our country,” Ambassador of Montenegro to the United Arab Emirates, Dušanka Jeknić, stated, according to CdM's report.
