The waterfalls, touted as one of the ‘world’s natural wonders’ were lit up in saffron, white and green—the colours of the Indian flag — for 30 minutes on April 28.
“India is currently facing a surge in cases and losses of life resulting from Covid-19. In a display of solidarity and hope for India, Niagara Falls will be illuminated tonight from 9:30 to 10 pm in orange, white and green, the colours of the flag of India. #StayStrongIndia” read a post on the official Twitter handle of the waterfalls.
