SOON after Friday night’s attacks on Paris, cities around the world began projecting the colors of the French flag onto landmarks in a brilliantly colored display in solidarity with the French people and in tribute to the victims of Friday’s attacks. Iconic locations radiate the blue, white, and red ‘Tricolore.’ Below are only some of the landmarks participating.
