Bicentennial Monument Seychelles

Seychelles / Africa

The Bicentennial Monument is a simple monument in Victoria, Seychelles. It depicts three pairs of extended white wings. It is also known as the Moniman trwa lezel (three-winged monument). It was designed in 1979 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Victoria from when it was founded in 178 by the Frenchman Charles Routier de Romainville. The wings of the monument represent the origin of the Creole people, who derive from three continents: Asia, Africa and Europe. The wings also refer to birds which are apt for Victoria which is home to a variety of rare birds. The only downfall to this monument is its placement. It is situated on the busy roundabout of Liberation Avenues. However, on foot this monument can properly be admired.
