Azerbaijan's Olympians Honored by the Empire State Building

August 08, 2012

On Wednesday, August 8, the Empire State Building honored Azerbaijan for its participation on the Olympic stage in London by shining the colors of its flag: blue, red, and green. As Azerbaijan progresses towards its bright future, the lighting ceremony is seen as one beacon of aspiration passing its torch to another.

As the most iconic building in the United States, born out of ‘the Race to the Sky’ in the midst of the Great Depression, the Empire State Building connects with people around the world as a symbol of dreams and accomplishment.  Its construction gave America hope during a time of despair.

Azerbaijan is quickly amassing it own architectural feats reflecting the achievements of an old nation forging a new modern identity. Nicknamed the “Dubai of the Caucasus” by the British newspaper "The Telegraph", its capital Baku is undergoing a construction boom that includes a number of expert-acknowledged unique masterpieces, including the multimedia surfaced Flame Towers.
