Iconic World Trade Center to display animated Indian Flag

At 8 pm on August 15, 2022, an animated Indian Flag will be displayed on the One World Trade Center podium. The building’s spire will also be lit up in the Indian Tri-color.
This initiative commemorates the world’s largest democracy – India celebrating its 75th year of Independence. As part of the celebrations, other Durst installations at One Bryant Park and One Five One, in mid-town will also be lit up in the tricolor.
The display will be visible starting at 8 pm and continuing until 2 am New York City time, on August 16th.
The community is encouraged to visit and witness this historic moment outside 200 West Street, New York, NY. The South Asian Engagement Foundation will be giving out commemorative pins to mark the celebration.
A live stream can also be viewed on https://saef-us.org/tricolor-nyc/ from anywhere in the world.
In September, coinciding with UN General Assembly, SAEF is planning a 3-night display showcasing India’s contribution to the world and the influence of Indian Americans in the US. Also, in October, they will be reprising the All-American Diwali display and fireworks. SAEF’s mission is to bring more awareness and exposure to the rich and diverse culture of the Indian American community in the United States.
