Stockholm shows its support for Barcelona

18 August 2017

Stockholm shows its support for the City of Barcelona after the terrible attack on Las Ramblas. Today, Friday the 18th of August, the Swedish flag is on half mast in the City Hall park to honour the victims.

Karin Wanngård, the Mayor of Stockholm, has sent a letter of condolences to Ada Colau, the Mayor of Barcelona:

”Please let me convey my deepest sympathies to you and to those who have lost loved ones or have been injured in this terrible deed.”

Stockholm and Barcelona stand united in the common battle for an open, free and democratic society. Stockholm has close relations with the City of Barcelona. Three years ago Barcelona was the guest city at the Stockholm cultural festival, currently taking place in Stockholm. The same year Stockholm visited the equivilent of Barcelona.
