Huge crowds gathered Sunday in Istanbul for a massive rally to mark the end of nightly democracy demonstrations following Turkey’s abortive July 15 coup that killed over 270 people.

A 60-meter (200-foot) stage was set up at the Yenikapi meeting area by the Marmara Sea in Istanbul’s European side. It was framed by two platforms and draped with massive national flags and banners depicting Turkey’s founding father Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and current President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
