French-American Friendship
"Flame of Liberty"


Flame of Liberty @ Place de l'Alma
near Alma-Marceau metro

The Flame of Liberty (pictured top right) is a replica of the flame carried in the hand of the Statue of Liberty in New York City. In 1987, it was given to France as a gift from the U.S. as a symbol of French-American friendship.



Because of the Flame's proximity — located above the infamous tunnel where Princess Diana tragically died in 1997 — many people over the years have believed this to be her memorial.

Today, it is still visited by people from around the world who come to pay respects.



Place de l’Alma is also the
departure point for the famous Bateaux-Mouches Sightseeing Boats, on the River Seine.
