Located in Flag's Plaza, Independence Monument commemorates the Albanian independence of 1912. The statue is tall and easy to spot as you approach the plaza. Notice the proud-looking figures of men in various types of dress, some carrying weapons--they represent the different types of Albanian people who fought for the country's independence. The statue's style was influenced by the Social Realism of the period, which celebrates the struggles of the worker.
