Montrealers share their favourite snaps of the city's rainbow buildings (PHOTOS)

Apr 9 2020, 7:35 am

We’re over a week into April but the flipping of calendar hasn’t changed Montreal’s devotion to the rainbow.

Rainbows have become a symbol of hope and solidarity throughout the city — and the world — and several buildings and structures across Montreal have joined in on the movement by lighting up their facades with a variety of colours.

Using the hashtag #cavabienaller on social media, landmarks throughout the city are showcasing creative ways to display rainbows with the slogan “ça va bien aller” (it’s going to be okay).

The slogan first started becoming popular on sidewalks and windows before the Samuel de Champlain Bridge and the Big O joined the lighting display. Most recently, the likes of the Maison Manuvie, the Université de Montréal, and the Montreal Marriott Chateau Champlain joined in on the illumination which has become a nightly spectacle.

When nighttime falls on already darks days, look up and marvel in the beauty of a city coming together to symbolize hope during the pandemic.
