"Gëlle Fra" Memorial in Luxembourg City

Description

Among historic monuments in Luxembourg, the Golden Lady on Constitution Square was set up in 1923 to commemorate the Luxembourgers who perished in the First World War. The memorial represents a gold-plated female figure on a stone obelisk.

On October, 20th, 1940 the Nazis pulled the monument down; only in 1984 did extensive restoration give it back its original appearance.

Today it symbolizes freedom and resistance for the Luxembourg people.
