SkyCity Auckland says the Sky Tower will be lit yellow and white from sunset tonight until 11:59 pm, then at midnight rainbow colours will be lit around the Sky Tower to celebrate Auckland’s move to COVID-19 Alert Level 1.

SkyCity says that it is their way of thanking Aucklanders for coming together in the ongoing fight against COVID-19.

The Sky Tower is the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest free-standing building. Based in the middle of Auckland, it is one of New Zealand’s most recognisable buildings.

In late 2019, the outside lights on the Sky Tower were changed to use LED, supporting SkyCity’s climate change commitment to decrease carbon emissions from the Sky Towers lighting by 10%.

SkyCity lights the Sky Tower for charities or community request that they support financially, to mark national holidays, milestones or other celebrations and events, or as a symbol of respect or solidarity.
