As the number of coronavirus cases in Pakistan surpassed 12,700, a mountain, nothing but the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps, was lit with the country’s flag, in an attempt to express solidarity and support in the midst of the pandemic.
Every night, the popular mountain is illuminated with projections of images, including flags of countries around the world, affected by the deadly disease.
On April 25, the Matterhorn of Switzerland designed the flag of Pakistan. A photo was shared on Twitter.
It said: “Switzerland shows solidarity with the people of Pakistan and wishes them strength”.
Artist Gerry Hofstetter started this initiative last month. Its first lighting on the mountain was that of the Swiss flag, CNN reported.
Flags from other countries, including the United States, Canada, Nepal and Russia, were also projected on the mountain.
Words like “hope”, “solidarity” and “stay at home” were also displayed.
