Sky Tower wears giant poppy to mark partnership with RSA

Sky Tower wears giant poppy to mark SKYCITY Poppy Partnership with Auckland RSA

The Sky Tower will wear a 13-metre poppy projected onto its side for the first time in its 17-year history, to commemorate SKYCITY’s second annual Poppy Partnership with the Auckland Returned & Services Association.

The Sky Tower will remain lit from Poppy Day on 17 April to Anzac Day on 25 April. The poppy emblem will be projected onto the south-east side of the tower so it is visible to attendees at the Anzac Day dawn service at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Auckland RSA Patron Dame Trelise Cooper will officially reveal the poppy lighting this evening, together with representatives from Auckland RSA and SKYCITY.

The Sky Tower is the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest man-made structure, and has become an iconic part of Auckland’s cityscape.

SKYCITY lights the Sky Tower to show support for a number of organisations and special events, often for charities or community initiatives that we support financially, or to mark national holidays, milestones or other celebrations.
