I´d love share with you "Flag Monument"Rosario, Rosario province Santa Fe. Argentina
Me gustaría compartir el "Monumento a la Bandera" Rosario, Provincia de Santa Fe. Argentina
Único Monumento del mundo dedicado a una Bandera.
Unique monument in the world dedicated to a flag.
National monument to the Flag Historical Monument Nacional (Santa Fe St. 581)_ One is facing the river. It has its origin in the installation of batteries, one of them Independence in the island Espinillo and the other Libertad on ravines of Parana river. It is in this last one where today is the monument, here the flag created by Manuel Belgrano it was hoisted the 27th February 1812 for the first time.
It is a project of the architects Alejandro Bustillo y Angel Guido, and the escultors Alfredo Bigatti and José Fioravanti. Made in travertino marble. Inaugurated the 20th June 1957. The change of the Honor guard of the National Monument to the Flag stands out the first Sundays of every month, which is integrated by soldiers of Regimiento Patricios.
The parks National of Bandera and Belgrano surround to this monument.
This particular representative symbol of the city of Rosary tries to represent the "ship of the Mother country", is divided in three parts:
-1- The Tower In its base is cripta of the general Manuel Belgrano.
-2- Civic Patio
-3- Propileo- Reproduce an athenian temple. Underneath is the Gallery of Honor of the Flags.
