SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz lit up Vivint Arena Monday night to show their support for Ukraine.

The organization used a series of high-powered lights that projected the arena in blue and yellow, the official colors of the Ukrainian flag.

On the Jazz outdoor video board, the words “Utah stands with Ukraine” were displayed beloved in blue and yellow font.

The demonstration accompanied a march at the Utah State Capitol to show support for the country which has been under siege by Russia over the last week.

The Utah State Capitol also had blue and yellow lights projected below its recognizable dome.

“Today we ordered the Ukrainian flag to fly above the Utah State Capitol as a symbol that Utah stands in solidarity with Ukraine,” Governor Spencer Cox tweeted. “You are our brothers and sisters β€” this day and always.”

The display marks just the second time the Utah State Capitol has been lit up according to Cox.

Earlier this week the Walker Building located at 175 South Main Street also lit up its neon lettering yellow and blue to show support for Ukraine.

The Jazz also shared a tweet showing the light over Vivint Arena. The post showed the arena from three angles and added an aerial fly-over.

On Friday, the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings held a moment of silence before their game to share their solidarity with Ukraine.

The players held the Ukrainian flag and linked arms with Kings center Alex Len who is one of two players from the country to play in the NBA.
