Switzerland’s famed Matterhorn mountain was emblazoned in the colours of the UAE flag with a message of hope and solidarity against the Coronavirus outbreak.

Swiss Alps lights up in the UAE flag

Gerry Hofstetter, a renowned visual artist who’s turned numerous landmarks into massive works of art, has been working on a series of light shows on the Swiss Alps’ Matterhorn mountain sending messages of hope and solidarity with the world fighting against Coronavirus. Yesterday, the UAE flag glowed mountainside in unity with the nation’s efforts to combat the outbreak. Check it out:

“Many countries suffer from the coronavirus. We give hope and strength to the people of the UAE and the many expats living there. The Matterhorn shines for them tonight. Together we will overcome the crisis. Therefore we have projected the flag of UAE٫ the Matterhorn, more than 1000 meters of size. We express our solidarity with the UAE and hope that this sign will give all people hope and courage to overcome the crisis.”
