Since the emergence of the coronavirus crisis in Switzerland, different symbols have been projected every night onto the Matterhorn, the iconic mountain of Switzerland.
Zermatt, the mountain village in Switzerland, wanted these illuminations to be symbols of hope. The village is showing solidarity with all those who are currently suffering and gratitude towards everyone helping to overcome the crisis.
It was on the night of April 17, 2020, that the projection was dedicated to the people of United Arab Emirates with the message, "Many countries are suffering from the outbreak of coronavirus. We give hope and strength to the people of the UAE and the many expats living there. The Matterhorn shines for them tonight. Together we will overcome the crisis. Therefore we have projected the flag of UAE, at the Matterhorn, which is more than 1,000 meters in size. We express our solidarity with UAE and hope that this sign will give all people hope and courage to overcome the crisis.
