Australia’s flag projected on to Swiss Alps in symbol of hope.

Australia’s national flag has been projected onto the Swiss Alps in an illuminated message of hope and solidarity during the global coronavirus pandemic.

“Since almost a month, we’re illuminating every night the Matterhorn with different symbols, to give the people hope and show our solidarity to the world,” Mr Luggen said in a video posted to Facebook on Wednesday evening, Australian time.

The video shows the national flags of numerous other countries including China, Italy, and the United States also projected onto Mount Matterhorn.

“It’s empty and quiet in Zermatt and that makes us sad, but soon we look forward to (having) you back here,” Mr Luggen said.
