Eiffel Tower PhotoFrank Augustein_Associated Press

The Eiffel Tower was dark for two nights, a symbol of Paris in mourning. At 6 p.m. yesterday, it lit up again, brilliantly illuminated in blue, white and red as a show of national solidarity.

Anne Hidalgo, the city’s mayor, requested to lit the tower with the colors of the French flag for three nights.

The city’s motto, Fluctuar Nec Mergitur — tossed but not sunk — is being projected on the first-floor deck with a hashtag.
