National Flag Memorial

It stands on the site in which, in 1812, Manuel Belgrano hoisted the Argentine Flag for the first time. This 12,000 ft2 memorial made of travertine marble represents the Argentine Nation in terms of a ship cutting through the waters of eternity. Its sections and details symbolize the Nation's historical milestones. The project was awarded to architects Ángel Guido & Alejandro Bustillo & sculptors Alfredo Bigatti & José Fioravanti. As the first Latin American attempt to bring back monumental architecture, the construction of this Memorial began in 1943 and it was inaugurated on June 20th, 1957.
