Showing of Support for Paris

Cities and countries all over the globe display the colors of the French flag, after a weekend of tragedy.

Over the weekend, landmarks around the globe glowed in blue, white and red lights, as a show of support for the City of Lights. In Paris, the French capital, a tragedy hit the area last Friday night, unfortunately taking the lives of a large number of people.

As investigators continue searching for answers, countries across the world have displayed their support - from the Opera House in Sydney, Australia… to the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt... to here at home in the U.S.

Landmarks all over our country proudly displayed the colors of the French flag. Here’s Seattle's Space Needle... One World Trade Center in New York City...and here in Ohio, Cleveland's Terminal Tower.

Vigils and moments of silence were also held in the days following the tragedy, as the global community joined together in solidarity.
