New York's Empire State Building will light up red and yellow tomorrow to honor the 60th anniversary of communist China, according to the skyscraper's official website.
The Chinese Communist Party has been in continuous power longer than any other current government in the world, the Associated Press reported.
Chinese ambassador Peng Keyu and other officials will be present for the lighting ceremony. The skyscraper is scheduled to display the colors until Thursday.
The Empire State Building website states, "All special lighting requests are considered based on the merit of their cause, the benefit of their use of the special lighting and their treatment of the Empire State Building's iconic image for the event and on an ongoing basis."
