United

This monument in Plovdiv, Bulgaria honors the one-hundredth anniversary of Bulgaria’s re-unification.The Russian-Turkish war set Bulgaria free from rule by the Ottoman Empire in 1878, but it included only a small part of the Bulgarian lands. The Unification of Eastern Rumelia and the Principality of Bulgaria was completed in year 1885, September 6. The monument depicts the Mother-Country with the laurel wreath of victory stretched in her hands, with her two wings representing the two regions brought together.
I put the white, green and red in the picture to represent the colors of the Bulgarian National Flag.
