Victory Square lies at the heart of Downtown Vancouver, close to the Gastown Steam Clock and the Vancouver Lookout Tower. It is on a busy intersection, bounded by West Hastings Street, West Pender Street, Cambie Street and Hamilton Street.
The Victory Square Cenotaph was unveiled in 1924 in memory of those who died during WWI. It is a 10m high triangular monument whose shape is in keeping with the shape of the square. On the monument are carved a long sword and two wreaths, one of laurels, the other of poppies; both entwined with maple leaves, and two stone helmets which are replicas of those worn by soldiers during the war. It continues to be the focus of Remembrance Day services and is often adorned with various allied national flags.
