Photo: Centennial Flame Parliament Hill Centre Block Ottawa Ontario Canada

The Centre Block and Peace Tower can be seen in the background behind the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill in the city of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The Centennial Flame is a fountain, with a flame in the middle.

The Centennial Flame in the foreground of this picture is a fountain with a symbolic flame in the centre. On January 1, 1967, then Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson first lit the flame to mark the Centennial celebrations, which was the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.

The fountain is located between the gates to Parliament Hill and the doors of the Centre Block in the background of the picture, and each province is represented in the fountain by the coat of arms shield that can be seen, which the water runs underneath. Above all, it is a monumnet to Canadian unity and the combination of fire and water is meant to symbolize the togetherness of English Canada and French Canada and visitors to Parliament Hill often throw money in the fountain for good luck.

The Peace Tower, on top of the Centre Block in the background of the picture, is the tallest, most prominent symbol of the Canadian Parliament buildings, and was built to commemorate the end of the First World War. ... continue below the picture...
