The Latvian Liberty Statue - known locally as "Milda" - has stood in Riga since 1935. The monument to freedom is still graced with flowers. It represents anti-Soviet resistance and Latvia's independence between the wars and Latvia's struggle for freedom from the USSR towards the end of the 20th century.
