Birmingham has staged its own event to mark the 60th anniversary of Pakistan's independence from the UK, and the creation of the country.
The flag will fly above the council house until the Indian ceremony
The Pakistani flag is flying outside the council house in Victoria Square after a ceremony on Tuesday morning.
The flag-raising was attended by several councillors with links to Pakistan and the deputy lord mayor.
On Wednesday, a similar event will take place in the city to mark India's independence from the UK.
The councillors who attended Tuesday morning's ceremony were Shaukat Ali Khan, Mahmood Hussain, Zaker Choudhry and Ayoub Khan.
The deputy lord mayor Mike Sharpe was also at the event.
Ayoub Khan said: "It was great honour to be involved in the flag-raising ceremony to celebrate the independence of Pakistan.
"I hope that residents across the city will join together to mark this historic day."
The ceremony to mark the 60th anniversary of Indian independence will also take place in Victoria Square.
Several community representatives are expected to attend, including Councillor Chaman Lal and Nina Gill MEP.
About 10 million people crossed borders during the violent partition of August 1947, in what was one of the largest mass migrations in history.
