Golden Lotus Square, Macao
The Golden Lotus Square in the former Portuguese colony of Macau is a large open area featuring a sculpture of a large Lotus flower - the emblem of Macau. It was given as a gift by the State Council of the People's Republic of China in 1999 marking the transfer of the sovereignty of Macau from Portugal to the People's Republic of China.
The beautiful flower is made from 6.5 tons of bronze which has been gilded. It is 6m high and stands on a base of red granite.
