CONCORDIA MONUMENT

In 1948, a monument was erected to remember the 300th anniversary of the Treaty of Concordia, in which the French and Dutch divided the island into its current binational status. Where else would the monument be, except for exactly on the border between both, from Philipsburg to Marigot? The monument is often depicted as symbol of binational unity between the two parts of the island. The monument was often the scene of government representatives meeting at St Martin’s Day (11 th of November), the day Columbus discovered St Maarten. As a symbol of island unity, the monument is depicted in the national emblem of Dutch side St Maarten, together with the national symbols of the Brown Pelican, the Courthouse and the Sage Flower. If the jade green hills around Concordia Monument appeal, you might want to stretch your legs your legs and enjoy them to the fullest via EPIC‘s Fleming property hiking trail!

 

The Concordia Monument is in the Simspson Bay area of St Maarten / St Martin.
