Located near the northern end of the Pont de l'Alma, on the Place de l'Alma, Flamme de la Liberte is a full-sized, gold-leaf-covered replica of the new flame at the upper end of the torch carried in the hand of the Statue of Liberty in New York City since 1986. The monument is a sculpture of a flame, executed in gilded copper and supported by a pedestal of gray-and-black marble. Here, you can view the embodiment of friendly French and American relations.

The flame became also an unofficial memorial for Diana, Princess of Wales, after her death in the tunnel beneath the Pont de l'Alma. The flame became an attraction for tourists and followers of Diana, and they fly-posted the base with commemorative material. Anthropologist Guy Lesoeurs is quoted saying, "Most people who come here think this was built for her." Plan a Paris trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • This is a replica of the flame atop the Statue of Liberty. It is also used as a makeshift shrine to Princess Diana. Makes for a good photo op for American kids.  more »

  • This has become a spot for people to gather to remember Lady Diana who died in the tunnel below this site. I think more people go to see that than to see the flame. Not far from the Eiffel Tower, of you're on your way from one place to another and you should happen to be passing, take a minute to stop.
  • Flame of Diana. Let the spirit, good work and helping nature of Princess Diana live on...
