Among them is an olive branch that symbolizes peace.

 

Legend has it that after the flood receded, the land was desolate. The dove released by Noah brought back a green olive branch, indicating that the earth has recovered and everything is at peace. Since then, the olive branch has become a symbol of “peace”, and the dove has become a “messenger of peace”, referred to as the “peace dove”. The emblem of the United Nations is two olive branches holding the earth, representing the fight for world peace.

 

The four statues are accompanied by lions. The lion is the symbol of Great Britain.

 

There are also 4 bronze figures in sculptures that are seated.

He holds a sword in his left hand and comforts the girl who asks for help in his right hand, intending to protect the weak. The angels of justice have their eyes closed, and some statues of the angels of justice are blindfolded with cloth, meaning “to see with the mind and not with the eyes”. The little boy holds a scale in his hand, which symbolizes justice and fairness.

05 At the top of the monument is a gilded statue of Victory.

 

At the top of the monument is the winged goddess of victory, both wearing a crown of thorns, holding palm leaves, and standing on a ball. The one holding the stick at the foot is “courage”, and the one holding the compass is “wisdom”. The goddess flutters her wings. The women holding a compass on both sides of the ball represent wisdom, and the men holding a stick represent courage. On the east and west sides of the base of the golden statue, eagles are looking down on each side, symbolizing the royal family’s hope that the British Empire can take off again.
