Blue and White over Pittsburgh
March 25th - March 27th, 2021
The City of Pittsburgh and some of its commercial partners, commemorating the Bicentennial and honoring the Greek-American community of Western PA, lit their buildings in blue or white, the colors of the Greek national flag on the evenings of the 25th - 27th of March, 2021.
The City-County Building, the Highmark Building, One Oxford Center, PNC Park, the Duquesne Incline, the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the lights on the three bridges connecting downtown with the North Shore, were all in blue.
The Carnegie Science Center Cone was blue.
UPMC and Equitable Resources switched the logos atop their buildings to white.
While not all the buildings downtown have the ability to change their illumination, those that were able to, and that chose to particapate did so.
We are grateful to the Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh, Mr. WIlliam Peduto, the County Executive - Mr. Richard Fitzgerald, and the leadership of the corporations listed earlier, who honored our community in this manner. Pittsburgh joined the many cities in the world who became Blue and White on the 25th of March, 2021.
