World Water Day: 39 iconic Singapore landmarks lit up in blue

22 March 2020 —  More than 35 iconic landmarks and bridges such as the Esplanade, Singapore Flyer, Gardens by the Bay and Helix Bridge lighted up in blue to commemorate World Water Day,  turning the Singapore skyline into a dazzling blue-cityscape.

22 March is the day designated by United Nations to focus attention on the importance of water and water sustainability.  ‘City Turns Blue’ is a signature event of the #GoBlue4SG movement, a nation-wide initiative in the month of March that aims to rally all Singaporeans and businesses to support the water cause through simple acts. 

Among them, 15 buildings are new to the ‘City Turns Blue’ initiative including ION Orchard, Plaza Singapura and Suntec City. This year, more buildings in the heartlands also came on board, such as Jurong Point, Nee Soon East Community Club and Our Tampines Hub.
