U.S. Bank Tower's crown in Red and Blue?

I jut noticed the USBank Tower's crowd is alternating red and blue. It's normally colored for holidays (July 4, Christmas season) or special events (Purple and Yellow for Lakers championships) but I don't see any occasion why it's red and blue now. Has US Bank changed the normal crown color to reflect their corporate colors? The "USBank" sign is much brighter than the normal white column lights.

They are alternating red and green between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. But they were blue and red tonight for some reason.

No, it's definitely blue. The red could look pinkish or purplish. I've seen it green and red before, it's definitely not green.

Nah, it's just that the USBank logo is REALLY bright...So bright, that from the Westside it still looks like the crown is white, but only until when you get close to Downtown can you see the "red" and blue.

This is the only time that I've heard it called The US Bank Tower and not The Library Tower from just a person who's talking about it. I still call it the Library Tower, I hate how corporations have their names EVERYWHERE. Leave this gem alone.

Not to defend corporations, but that's who these buildings are made for in the first place...as offices for corporations. I don't care what it's called, but the USBank logo just ruins the building.

it doesn't even point to where people would usually stay...
one side points towards some hill that blocks it and the other points to rundown-factory areas...
