This will be done in addition to the annual tradition of lighting the Empire State Building. The building will be lighted on August 14 itself. The flag hoisting is a tribute to the growing loyalty of the Indian-American community and also a mark of celebration of the golden jubilee year of FIA. A virtual celebration ceremony will be held as the annual parade that takes place in the city of Manhattan will not be taking place because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
