Corregidor’s Eternal Flame of Freedom


Designed by Aristides Dimetrios (a famous contemporary sculptor), the Eternal Flame of Freedom symbolizes never-ending liberty. It is a 12-meter high Corten steel structure that remembers the sacrifices, hopes, aspirations and the epic battle by the United States and the Philippines to keep our freedom for future generations. It is a reminder that all men will fight as one if needed to defend a nation’s liberty.

The Eternal Flame of Freedom is located behind the dome of the Pacific War Memorial which is just meters away from the Historic Cine Corregidor and Mile Long Barracks. The structure sits on a raised platform which provides visitors an astonishing picturesque of Bataan Peninsula, Manila Bay and Cavite coastlines.

The lights of the Eternal Flame are powered by Solar Energy. The solar panels were donated by SUNPOWER Philippines Manufacturing Ltd in partnership with U-Freight Philippines Inc, Department of Energy, Corregidor Foundation Inc. and Filipino-American Memorial Endowment, Inc on March 1, 2005.
