SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE SAILS TO BE LIT BLUE AND YELLOW IN SUPPORT OF UNDEFEATED UKRAINE
The Sydney Opera House will tonight be amongst the global landmarks being lit blue and yellow in a show of continued support for Ukraine one year on from the invasion.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said the lighting of the sails was an important symbol of how the people of NSW stood with Ukraine.
“We join our allies across the world to symbolically light landmarks as an act of solidarity and as a reminder that we continue to stand strong with Ukraine,” Mr Perrottet said.
“One year on and the people of Ukraine continue to fight courageously against the brutal invasion of their homeland.
“We reaffirm our respect for Ukrainian territorial sovereignty and its right to peace, freedom, and democracy, and we will continue to show our full support.”
Minister for Multiculturalism Mark Coure said the lighting of the sails demonstrated that NSW continues to stand with Ukrainian communities in NSW and abroad.
“The blue and yellow lights on the Sydney Opera House sails signify our continued support for the people of Ukraine, and serves as a reminder that NSW is always prepared to welcome Ukrainians with open arms,” Mr Coure said.
“Many of the Ukrainian nationals that have come to NSW as a result of the war have already made countless contributions to our state, and we will continue to ensure they are supported as best as possible.
“Ukrainians living in NSW and right across the world remain in our thoughts and prayers.”
The blue and yellow lights will be projected onto the Sydney Opera House sails from 8.15pm until midnight.
