Visiting Flame of Liberty, the Diana Memorial in Paris

The Flame of Liberty might now be a typical sight to visit in Paris, but is definitely one to see. The Flame of Liberty is the “unofficial” Lady Di Diana Memorial in Paris. It is located exactly above the tunnel, where Lady Diana and Dodi Fayed had their car accident back in 1997, where both died. The empathy is still strong with the former Princess of Wales, as there were fresh bouquets of flowers when I visited, so many years after her death. For more details, you should visit the Wikipedia page about the accident.
What is often mistaken, the Flame of Liberty is not the Memorial of Diana, and Dodi, it’s already in Paris since 1989 as a symbol of the Franco-American friendship. This Flame of Liberty in Paris is a replica of the flame in the hand of the Statue of Liberty, which stands at the entrance to the harbour of New York City since 1886.

    I feel silly for not knowing this existed. It’s very pretty at night. That’s sweet that people are still leaving flowers for Princess Diana.

    This is really interesting, I would never have thought of going there. Interesting that there are still fresh flowers.
