Christ the Redeemer is German for the night. 

After Germany defeated Argentina in the World Cup final, the iconic Rio de Janeiro landmark was lit up in German colours to honour their victory. 

It wasn't the only building dressed up to celebrate the victory. The Empire State Building, which had been doing so throughout the tournament, pledged to be German on Sunday night.
