The UAE flag …..shines from far – on the Matterhorn, the iconic Swiss mountain.
Since the emergence of the coronavirus crisis in Switzerland, different symbols have been projected every night onto the Matterhorn, the iconic mountain of Switzerland. Zermatt want this illumination to be a symbol of hope. The initiative is seen as Zermatt village showing solidarity with all those who are currently suffering and gratitude towards everyone helping to overcome the crisis.
Yesterday night, Zermatt dedicated the projection to the people of United Arab Emirates with the message: “Many countries suffer from the corona virus. We give hope and strength to the people of the UAE and the many expats living there. The Matterhorn shines for them tonight. Together we will overcome the crisis. Therefore we have projected the flag of UAE٫ the Matterhorn, more than 1000 meters of size. We express our solidarity with UAE and hope that this sign will give all people hope and courage to overcome the crisis.”
