The Embassy Building in the Indian Flag's Tricolour

The Royal Danish Embassy in New Delhi has celebrated Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, an important initiative by Government of India to commemorate India’s 75 years of independence and the glorious history of its culture and traditions. To support and participate, the Danish Embassy illuminated the Embassy building in the Indian flag’s tricolour.

The Embassy building is an epitome of Danish architecture and design. Constructed by Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects, the building is a Danish modernist interpretation of Northern India’s filigree design tradition. The Embassy received an honorary mention at the 'Building of the Year 2019' - award for fulfilling the vision of an open, state, and democratic building.

A picture of the lights on the building got impressive attention in online news (Read NDTV's article here) and went viral on Twitter. The Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India has as well noticed the initiative and appreciated it by sharing the picture on their social media platforms (see the twitter post here)
