Hello everyone !
The Statue of Liberty is a gift from France.
This monumental sculpture is one of the greatest symbols of the United States.
Proudly erected on Liberty Island in New York, it is known throughout the world.
But did you know that it had been offered to the Americans by the French people, as a token of friendship?
The iconic statue was built in France for 9 years before being unveiled to the public on October 28, 1886 to mark the centenary of the declaration of independence of the United States.
It was classified as a national monument in 1924 and has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1984.
Its official name is "Liberty Enlightening the World", or in French "La Liberté illuminant le monde".
Good day and good game ;)
