Green ‘n gold Clock Tower of the Rugby World Cup

Green 'n Gold Clock Tower
The V&A Waterfront's well-known red Clock Tower got a fresh coat of green and gold paint in preparation for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

A fresh coat of paint for a rugby tournament? In case you were wondering, yes, we are a rugby-crazy nation.

I far prefer the red version of the clock tower, but one can't deny that to paint the building in our national sporting colours is a great symbol of support for the national team. That said, I do hope that the tower returns to its traditional red colour after we win the World Cup, again. ;)

    I prefer the red too – but applaud the support for the Boks. By chance I finally got around to watching Invictus last night, how appropriate to see this today!

    Just catching up on some blogs and paying you a visit :)

    Gosh this was a surprise but although I like the traditional red colour I must hand it to Cape Town for showing such great support for the Rugby team and yes I know England now out but I was born in Wales and yes we’re still in..!!
