The Korean War Memorial in Centennial Park, Sydney was awarded recognition as a ‘Military Memorial of National Significance’ by the Australian Government.
The Memorial design is a hybrid combination of sculpture and landscape that utilises layering and symbolism. Some of the symbolic gestures include use of the South Korean flag, the national flower “Rose of Sharon”, the harsh terrain of Korea, and significant events of the Korean War to create a memorial that signifies Commemoration, Regeneration and Remembrance.
