The Friendship Statue in Macau

The Friendship Statue in Macau

The Friendship Statue stands on Senado Square, and shows a Chinese girl giving a flower to a Portuguese boy. The flower is actually a lotus flower, which is the floral emblem of Macau, and the girl offering the lotus to the boy symbolises the friendship between the Chinese and Portuguese. The lotus can also be found on Macau’s flag.

In the background you can see the ruins of Sao Paolo, which used to be St Paul’s college and cathedral and date back to the 16th century. In 2005 they were listed as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sies.
