Swiss Village Has Been Projecting World Flags Onto One Of Their Tallest Mountains In Solidarity Of Pandemic

Swiss light artist Gerry Hofstetter has been lighting up the 4,478 meter pyramidal peak straddling between Switzerland and Italy with spectacular displays of flags of different countries and messages of hope as part of a nightly series supporting the nations combating the deadly pandemic.

“With this light projection, Zermatt wants to give people a sign of hope and solidarity in these difficult times,” reads the Zermatt Matterhorn tourism website. “The village shows solidarity with all the people who are currently suffering and is grateful to all those who are helping to overcome the crisis.”
