Democracy is made through the integration of sacrifice, pain, and endurance of numerous people.

This sculpture symbolizes nameless stars that showed their passion for democracy by
installing small glistering pieces on the side of the sculpture. It shows the process of
sublimation to Democracy by unification of sacrificed and living people inside and
outside, the ideal and the real, and inside and outside. And it symbolizes
the power of Busan to soar into the infinite space and time.

The Flame of Democracy, shown below through the
open space of a round shape and seen as
various shapes depending on
the direction, is respected
as a new landmark of
unusual things (like a flying
flame, flag, mast, and spaceship) that
is located on top of mountain.

You can find a special building that has extraordinary structure in the Democratic Struggle Memorial Building. That is a place called ‘Round Lamp’.

The memorial building is designed in the shape of a round fortress with and a symbolic sculpture installed in the center of the building, making the main passage in the direction of ‘Field of Wind’ from the 1st basement to the 4th floor in the shape of a trisectrix. The building is entirely wheelchair accessible.

There are some outstanding events that are held in the round lamp.
One example is children’s painting and book exhibitions.
Children may climb onto the ‘Field of Wind’, passing ‘Pyulchuboim Hall’, while watching the masterpiece with their friends along with a lamp, hand-in-hand with their parents. Looking downward from some places on the lamp, you can see the yard where various sculptures are located and the ‘Flame of Democracy’ is standing tall through the blue sky and upward.

Democracy Park is a space symbolic of the democratic movement of Busan and operated by the Busan Democratic Movement Foundation in association with Busan City.
