The Canada Memorial, London

Located in the Green Park, London, adjacent Buckingham Palace, the Canada Memorial honors the thousands of members of the Canadian Forces killed during World Wars I and II. Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Granche, the inclined sculpture is inset with bronze maple leaves. Water flows across the sloping surface and creates an illusion of floating leaves. An inscription at the centre of the memorial reads:

 

"In two world wars, one million Canadians came to Britain and joined the fight for freedom. From danger shared, our friendship prospers."
