The Eiffel Tower is lit with the blue, white and red colors of the French flag in Paris on Monday to pay tribute to the victims of a series of deadly attacks on Friday in the French capital.

The tallest structure in Paris and a symbol of France reopened on Monday. From nightfall until midnight on Tuesday, it will be lit up in blue, white and red with a projection of Paris’s city motto “Fluctuat Nec Mergitur,” which means tossed by the waves but does not sink.

    When we had dinner in Cortona a few weeks ago we had just come down from spending over a week in Paris. It never changes and every time we are there it is like coming home.
    There is a joke that the French are “grumpy Italians” but it is a vibrant city full of gracious people. Thank you for these images. We are all Parisians.

    Aloha Judy,

    It was on every new station here in the states last night. I even sent all my friends the photo. Clearly it has moved the world much like 9-11.

    Placido Domingo, played “La Marseillaise” at the “Met” two nights ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6vGq_rHAmE

    You may not know this but 25% of the blood in my veins is French and I weep profusely every time I hear this French Hymn.
