St. Stephen's Day 2021

Budapest, Hungary

The largest fireworks and light show ever taking place in Europe was presented for large audiences celebrating the founding of the Hungarian state in Budapest on the 20th of August, 2021 in which drones played a prominent role. Drone displays provided a framework for spectacular fireworks and projection mappings in The New "Game of Fire and Lights" presentation, the highlight of the series of programs organized in memory of King St. Stephen of Hungary. The spectacle was started by a constantly moving horse and rider designed by CollMot Entertainment and sculptor Ágnes Előd using 3D animation techniques. The program was closed by the image of The Holy Crown and The Holy Cross painted on the sky to the music of the anthem as a result of the coordinated flight of the drones.
