Lol, the skyline hasn't changed since 1992. It does improve its rank with the glass installed. Now it is the ugliest building with glass.

PS: I am joking, the building looks much better.

1st it looked white to me too, but of course the flag is only the little "red dot" I was seeing.

It remains fairly unique!

The only thing that comes close is the Transamerica pyramid and Ryugyong beats it for height, drama, and overall resemblance to a spaceship.

Why would it be a Japanese flag?

I hope you are just kidding ahahahha . What can I see is just a brown/red dot. Not NKorean nor Japanese flag.
The one in the last picture is more clear, it looks like a Cuban flag though. :P Or Turkish.

In that picture, which top levels are supposed to be revolving levels? I don't see any possibility as the three 'corners' look like solid concrete. Or was that idea abandoned years ago?
