The White House was illuminated in rainbow colors on Friday to celebrate the Supreme Court's landmark ruling striking down state bans on gay marriage.

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama, said in tweet that the Gay Pride illumination “reflects what we always knew in our hearts.”

In a statement, the White House said: “Tonight, the White House was lit to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to progress and equality, here in America and around the world. The pride colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community, and tonight, these colors celebrate a new chapter in the history of American civil rights.”

According to CNN, the display attracted a sizeable crowd.

“It's huge,” said Kevin Barragan. “Symbols are really important, especially for young people who are coming to terms with their identities.”

Other landmarks lit in rainbow colors were One World Trade Center, Niagara Falls, and several city halls, including those in San Francisco and Denver.
