Burj Khalifa Lights up with Philippine Flag to Celebrate PH Independence Day

Happy Philippine Independence Day! June 12 is the independence day of the Philippines and this 2020, we are celebrating 122 years of Philippine Independence. In Dubai, the Burj Khalifa has lit up with the colors of the Philippine flag.

While we are all practicing social distancing and we are not allowed to gather, Filipinos can still celebrate virtually. Filipino-led community groups have spearheaded events in order to celebrate this occasion.
