FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Flint joins cities around the world to show support for the LGBT community after the terror attack in Orlando.

Its Downtown Development Authority changed the regular white bulbs to multi-colored bulbs on the city's downtown arches over Saginaw Street. The colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community and the rainbow is often used as a symbol of gay pride

A spokesperson for the city says, "Flint is thinking about those in Orlando affected by the tragedy."

The shooting early Sunday morning at an LGBT nightclub has claimed the lives of 49 people and injured 53, making it the worst mass shooting in American history.

The rainbow flag and multi-colored lights can be seen at government buildings, monuments and public bridges from Sydney, Australia, to Nashville, TN.
