The White House fountain is just one of many of the world's landmarks that goes green in honour of St. Patrick's Day.
St. Patrick’s Day and the colour green are synonymous with Ireland, so it’s no wonder Tourism Ireland is encouraging more than 70 iconic landmarks around the world to go green for March 17.
Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “This is the fifth year of Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening initiative and each year I am delighted to see even more well-known attractions and landmark sites wishing to get involved and join our St Patrick’s celebrations.
“The success of our Global Greening initiative is due in no small part to the great work that has been carried out across the world by Irish people down the generations and, in particular, to the great support we’ve received from Irish Ambassadors and the Diaspora.
