Empire State Building in EU Colours


On Sunday, 9 May 2021, for the 13th year, New Yorkers will see the Empire State Building tower lit in EU colours: blue and yellow.

Each year for Europe Day, this architectural gem is ablaze in gold and sapphire to celebrate Europe and its citizens and our shared history, values and culture.

Celebrate #EuropeDayNYC with us by sharing your photos of the Empire State Building on 9 May and tagging @EUatUN and @EmpireStateBldg on Twitter and Instagram.
