The tower of the iconic One World Trade Center will light up Aug. 15 with the Indian flag to celebrate Indian Independence Day. In addition, the tri-color will appear on the podium of the World Trade Center.

This initiative is to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the independence of India, the largest democracy in the world. As part of the celebrations, other Durst facilities located in Bryant One Park and the 15th in the city center will also be lit with tri-color lights.
