The iconic Hollywood Sign turned 100 years old on Halloween. The Hollywood Sign is an American landmark and cultural icon overlooking Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.

The Los Angeles City Council celebrated the 100th anniversary of the sign with members of the city.

The city commemorated the milestone by declaring Oct. 31 as “Hollywood Sign Day” in the city.

Councilwoman Nithya Raman, who represents the 4th District, which includes Mount Lee where the Hollywood Sign is located, will lead a presentation during Tuesday’s Council meeting and uplift the work of the Hollywood Sign Trust, a nonprofit aimed at maintaining, repairing and securing the famous sign.

“As the sign celebrates its centennial throughout 2023, the Hollywood Sign Trust and the city of Los Angeles continue to protect Hollywood’s biggest star and educate the world about Los Angeles’ most famous icon,” the resolution states. “The Hollywood Sign remains a celestial fixture above a city of constant change and a beacon for aspiring stars from all walks of life, with nine simple white letters.”

The Hollywood Sign continues to be a worldwide attraction for those who visit this city of creativity.
