New York`s famed Empire State Building will light up with the national flag of Azerbaijan on August 8.
The Empire State Building is honoring nations competing in London by shining its world-famous tower lights in different colors each night to match the country`s flags. Each of the tower`s four sides will be illuminated in different colors throughout the night for each night through August 12.
The Empire State Building`s South side will represent Azerbaijan this Wednesday.
This marks the second time the Empire State Building has split the tower`s sides with four separate countries` lights in its history. The building has been lit with colored lights since 1976.
Soaring more than a quarter of a mile above the heart of Manhattan, the Empire State Building is the World`s Most Famous Office Building. A symbol of dreams and aspirations, the Empire State Building connects with people around the world. A beacon for international and domestic tourists alike, the Empire State Building is a New York City and a National Historic Landmark.
