A major ceremony will take place at the Place de la Constitution on Saturday 27 May to celebrate 100 years of the Monument of Remembrance.

The ceremony will be attended by the Grand Ducal couple, the mayor of Luxembourg City, and other representatives of the capital's institutions, and will include a speech by Prime Minister Xavier Bettel. The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess will lay a wreath beneath the monument, accompanied by the country's key political figures.

Following the ceremony, the public will be permitted to lay flowers beneath the Gëlle Fra monument. A photography exhibition will also be open for viewings.

The "Golden Lady" statue, sculpted by Luxembourgish artist Claus Cito, was inaugurated on 27 May 1923. The monument is dedicated to the memory of the Luxembourgers who fought in both World Wars, the Korean War, and to the volunteers of the international brigades of the Spanish Civil War.

Over the past century, the Gëlle Fra has become a symbol of freedom and cohesion for the country and its inhabitants.
