As global tributes continue to pour in following the death of Nelson Mandela, Paris and Washington D. C. have honoured the great man in their own special and brilliant way.

The French capital city has illuminated its most iconic landmark, the Eiffel Tower, in honour of one of the world’s most illuminating icons, Madiba, in the colours of the South African flag.

Beautiful:

Similarly, the South African embassy in Washington D.C. used its light installations in an even more moving and touching way, as the Ambassador cast the South African’s inspirational shadow across the building:

RIP Mandela
