For the last three years, some of the world’s most iconic buildings have turned green for St. Patrick’s Day, including Dublin’s Trinity College, the London Eye, Glasgow’s Armadillo, Selfridges, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Niagara Falls, the Empire State Building, Rio’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid, the Burj al Arab in Dubai, Table Mountain, Sydney Opera House, the Chicago River, the Pyramids and the Sphinx.

This year’s Global Greening, an extremely clever and effective form of marketing whose aim is to get people talking about Ireland and then persuading them to visit the Emerald Isle, will be the biggest to date with 100 landmarks taking part. Amongst those going green for the first time are the Holmenkollen ski jump in Oslo, the Hydro, the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign and the Great Wall of China, while Petra, the ‘rose red city’ will become the ‘grass green city’ for one day only to celebrate the national day of the Irish.

Yang Guang, Edinburgh Zoo’s endearing male panda, has decided that, if it was good enough for a flock of sheep from Bathgate last year, then he might as well join in the fun this year by turning a rather fetching combination of shades of green! (I actually made that one up but this is what he’d look like if it were true!) As you can see, he's also thoroughly enjoying a special St. Patrick's Day treat - bamboo and shamrocks!
