Inspirock Rating:
3.1/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web
Located near the northern end of the Pont de l'Alma, on the Place de l'Alma, Liberty Flame is a full-sized, gold-leaf-covered replica of the new flame at the upper end of the torch carried in the hand of the Statue of Liberty in New York City since 1986. The monument is a sculpture of a flame, executed in gilded copper and supported by a pedestal of gray-and-black marble. Here, you can view the embodiment of friendly French and American relations.

The flame became also an unofficial memorial for Diana, Princess of Wales, after her death in the tunnel beneath the Pont de l'Alma. The flame became an attraction for tourists and followers of Diana, and they fly-posted the base with commemorative material. Anthropologist Guy Lesoeurs is quoted saying, "Most people who come here think this was built for her."

  • We walked by and noticed all the Princess Diana memorabilia. It was sweet that people still stop to honor her memory near the site of her tragic death. 
  • This is more commonly known as the Princess Diana memorial. It is often covered with flower bouquets comemmorating her death here. The padlocks on the chains around the flame are "lovelocks" that people leave as an icon to their eternal love. The city is considering removing them as it has done at other Paris landmarks.
  • Beautiful
  • A lot of hype, go and see the real thing!
  • Flamme itu apa artinya?Kenapa gedungnya berjenis seperti ini?
  • This is a Princess Diana Memorial. Translate flame of freedom and of what? Lots of flower was dedicated. Monument image of flames but was just in my variant of the Bauhinia statue of Hong Kong S.A.R. only did not seem. I was unsure. Alma Marceau station of line 9 step not located along the Seine for now. Eiffel Tower on the other side.
