The Eiffel Tower is lit with the blue, white and red colors of the French flag in Paris on Monday to pay tribute to the victims of a series of deadly attacks on Friday in the French capital.

The tallest structure in Paris and a symbol of France reopened on Monday. From nightfall until midnight on Tuesday, it will be lit up in blue, white and red with a projection of Paris's city motto "Fluctuat Nec Mergitur," which means tossed by the waves but does not sink.
