Sky Tower Lighting
At special times throughout the year the Sky Tower lights up certain colours to show support for a range of activities. These range from annual calendar events, community partnerships and sporting events.
For the lead up and throughout the World Cup SKYCITY showed its support for the tournament by lighting the Sky Tower different colours in honour of the 20 competing countries. Over the 20 day lead up the Sky Tower was lit a different combination of colours every night, and throughout the World Cup finals the Sky Tower acted as an up to date scoreboard, displaying the winning team’s colours.
You may recognise some the specific colour combinations for the following events:
- Blue - Auckland Blues Rugby franchise
- Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness Month
- Blue (in September) - Blue September
- Red and Green - Christmas
- Red and Gold - Chinese New Year
- Green - St. Patrick's Day
