For Bastille Day on July 14, the Eiffel Tower in Paris was lit up in blue and yellow. The National Orchestra of France played a melody by the Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk. During the blue-yellow fireworks, the song “Stephania” by the Kalush Orchestra, with which Ukraine won the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, was played.
