The caption noted the similarities the two countries have, with different ethnicities living together in peace.

The beautiful displays was a project by Zermatt, the village at the base of the mountain. Light artist Gerry Hofstetter has been illuminating the Matterhorn with various flags of the world since 24 March 2020, as a sign of hope and solidarity to the world.

America’s red, white and blue was recently featured on 16 April 2020.
