Liberty Flame, Paris

(3.3/5 based on 110+ 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."

  • To the North across the Alma bridge from the Eiffel Tower. This is a full size replica of an otherwise, with its statue of liberty torch (flame) in 1989, was awarded to France from the United States. This flame has never been to New York, and you can imagine the size of the statue. The floral tributes and messages from 1997, was killed by Princess Diana in the tunnel beneath this monument made nature and implications, such as her monument apparently was now flowers is prohibited it is. When I went (6/2015), just like many other bridges and monuments to lovers and tourists was fitted with many key chain.

  • Under this place inside the tunnel where princess Diana died in a tragic car accident commonly known as Diana memorial.most of the time. You could witnesses flower bouquets here to commemorate late princess.
  • Located on top of the tunnel in which Princess Diana died. The city created a memorial for her and people have added pics and flowers for her to commemorate 19 years since her death
  • Sombre reminder of the Lady Diana tragedy. That aside, it's a regular meeting point for me and my friends, hard to miss, and the location is quite central.
  • This monument unofficially stands as a monument for Lady D's death. It is a symbol of American French relations.
  • This is the place where Princess Diana died. In early september, there are always flowers and pictures around the statue.
