Paris faced unimaginable terrors on Friday night, November 13, and when Paris turned off its lights the rest of the world turn theirs on. Many landmarks around the globe lit their monuments with the colours of the French Flag, including Calgary.
Here are some photos of our landmarks that lit up with the French flag in Solidarity:
The Calgary Tower
Sitting at 191 metres above the downtown core, our Calgary Tower’s bright LED lights lit up with the French Flag.
Red, white, and blue.
The McMahon Stadium lit up in the colours of the French Flag in an LED light display around the top of the stadium, where Calgarians driving on Crowchild Trail could easily see the bright lights.

The entire Langevin Bridge was lit up in the French flag, from top to bottom and side to side.
