Landmarks across the United States were lit to look like France’s flag on Friday night after terrorist attacks in Paris took the lives of 127 people and injured many others.
The Blaze reports that people across social media in the U.S. took and posted photos of various buildings across the country which stood in solidarity with the people of France by being lit to represent France’s flag in blue, white, and red.
City Hall in San Francisco, the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Washington D.C., and the Omni Hotel in Dallas were a few of the buildings that were lit to represent the French flag last night.
In addition, the Eiffel Tower replica in Las Vegas was kept dark in honor of those who were killed in the attacks.
World leaders have condemned the attacks which were reportedly carried out by the Islamic State, and France’s president, Francois Hollande, has called the attacks “an act of war.”
