— -- The Belgian flag's colors of black, yellow and red lit up the skies across Europe and the Middle East this evening to express their support of Brussels in the wake of the terrorist attacks.
From Paris to Dubai, countries around the world joined in solidarity with Brussels when the city was devastated by explosions that claimed the lives of at least 31 people and injured dozens more.
Famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the Trevi Fountain in Rome and even Dubai’s tallest skyscraper -- Burj Khalifa -- lit up the night sky in the colors of the Belgian flag.
Downing Street in London also flew the Belgian Flag at half-staff to mourn the victims lost in the attacks.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has also directed One World Center’s 408-foot spire to display the Belgian colors, saying the global community remains united.
“New York stands shoulder to shoulder with the people of Belgium and the rest of the world in rejecting the hate and extremism behind this violence,” Cuomo said in a statement. “Tonight, One World Trade Center will be displayed in black, yellow and red as we stand in solemn solidarity with the people of Belgium.”
