Iconic Azadi Tower Marks Chinese New Year

TEHRAN (Honaronline) - The iconic Azadi Tower in Tehran, Iran’s capital, flashed red on Monday, a color associated with good luck and happiness in China, to mark the Chinese Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival, which falls on Feb. 1 this year.
With the Chinese and Iranian national anthems playing in the background, the national flags of the two countries were flying on the top of the tower, while the main body of the landmark was illuminated in red.
Slogans in Chinese and Persian, such as “happy Chinese New Year,” “warmly celebrate the 50th anniversary of China-Iran diplomatic ties,” and Chinese Ambassador to Iran Chang Hua said the light show represents Iran’s good wishes for the Chinese Lunar New Year and the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics.
“It has fully demonstrated the profound friendship and bonds between peoples of both countries,” he said.
