The world's tallest building lit up in orange, white and green in celebration of a milestone moment in Indian history.

's Burj Khalifa was proudly illuminated by the colours of India's national flag to mark the country's 71st Republic Day on Sunday.

The landmark occasion - which is a national holiday in India - honours the date on which the country's constitution came into effect.

The constitution was adopted in November 1949, before being ratified on January 26, 1950, completing India's transition from part of the British Empire to an independent nation in its own right.

India secured Independence from British rule in 1947.

Republic Day was a cause for celebration for more than a billion Indians, including the estimated three million who reside in the Emirates.

Members of the Indian community celebrated Republic Day at the Indian High School in Dubai on Sunday.

Families and dignitaries watched cultural performance by Indian pupils, followed by a patriotic parade at the school campus.

The Indian national flag was hoisted by Consul General of India to Dubai, Vipul, at the Indian Consulate. After the flag hoisting, Vipul read out India’s President Ram Nath Kovind's speech to the nation.
