It's an effect - to emphasize the flag - called "focal color" in Picassa .

I was just over 1 Km away checking out another set of buildings, noticed this while crossing the street.

I think so, its definately taller than the one in toronto, this tower initially was to be the tallest in the USA, but scaled down after 9/11 of course.
