The symbolic arch of Wembley Stadium in London has been lit in red in solidarity with the victims of deadly Dec. 10 bombings in Istanbul that killed at least 44 people.

The FA, the governing body of English football, shared a post on Twitter showing the stadium’s arch in red.

“Wembley’s arch is red tonight as a mark of respect and sympathy following the attacks outside Beşiktaş’s stadium in Turkey yesterday,” it said, while also tweeting similar sentiments.

Some landmark sites in Istanbul also turned red on Dec. 11, including the Bosphorus Bridge (July 15 Martyrs Bridge) and Galata Tower.

Meanwhile, Beşiktaş fans will march to their home stadium Vodafone Arena, which was the scene of the deadly attack, on Dec. 12 at 7:03 p.m. to commemorate the victims.
