The New Zealand Memorial

The New Zealand Memorial

The New Zealand Memorial in London's Hyde Park Corner commemorates the enduring bonds between New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and our shared sacrifice during times of war. It is a symbol both of our common heritage and of New Zealand's distinct identity.

Designed by architect John Hardwick-Smith and sculptor Paul Dibble the memorial consists of 16 cross-shaped vertical bronze 'standards' set out in formation on a grassy slope. Each standard is adorned with text, patterns and small sculptures.

The memorial was dedicated on 11 November 2006 and is a focus for Anzac Day commemorations in London each year.

For more information please see the website of the New Zealand Ministry for Culture and Heritage.
