On Friday, February 9, in order to celebrate the athletes competing in the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, the Empire State Building in New York City will be illuminated in rotating colors of participating countries’ flags, including Latvia. Illumination will commence at around 5:30 PM after the sunset and continue until 2 AM. Colors of each flag will appear for five seconds. The flag of Latvia will thereby appear approximately seven times per hour.
The Honorary Consul of Latvia in New York Mr Daris Gunārs Dēliņš (https://www.latvia-newyork.org/) worked actively for the project to succeed.
