The Adelaide Town Hall has been lit up in green to pay tribute to the devastating blast that shook Beirut, Lebanon on 4 August.

Thanks to the efforts of Grace Eliseo, and the Lebanese community in Adelaide, the gesture is one of solidarity, to show support to all those affected by the event.

The green lights represent the Cedar Tree of Lebanon, and the tree symbolises holiness, eternity and peace.

In the wake of the disaster, there have been many vigils held across the globe that pay tribute to the devastation caused by the blast.

On Tuesday 11 August, the Lebanese community of Adelaide gathered in Victoria Square to pay their respects a week after the devastating explosion.

The group spelled out Beirut in a candlelit vigil to light a candle of hope for the people affected by the disaster.

Buildings across the country have been lighting up in green to show solidarity, including the Sydney Town Hall and Sydney Opera House.

Tonight the Adelaide Oval, Parliament House and Melbourne’s Art Centre will all shine green as a continued effort to offer support to the Lebanese communities in Australia.
