Thousands of flowers laid at Paris' city hall to honour WWI dead ahead of Armistice Day

Paris City hall commemorated the centenary of the World War I armistice by displaying 94415 flowers to pay tribute to the 94415 Parisian soldiers who died during WWI.

The mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo visited the site on Saturday night where a screen in front of the City Hall was showing names of the fallen soldiers.

The City Hall was illuminated in the colours of the French flag.

The armistice entered into force on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, and on Sunday 69 world leaders will commemorate the centennial of the event at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, underneath the Arc de Triomphe in central Paris.
