The blue and gold colours of Ukraine's national flag have become a more common sight in Canada and around the world, following the Russian invasion of Ukraine a week ago.

Many monuments and landmarks are lit in blue and gold, while foreign nations hoist the Ukraine flag and supporters wear ribbons, in a show of support for the besieged people of Ukraine.
