The Gëlle Fra statue, whose centenary was celebrated in May 2023, was designed by the Luxembourg sculptor Claus Cito just after the First World War as a tribute to the Luxembourg soldiers who lost their lives during the Great War.

Dismantled and hidden by the local population to protect her from the Nazi invaders during the Second World War, the golden lady disappeared from view for a quarter of a century, before being found, restored and rehabilitated. The influence of the Gëlle Fra is such that she was even relocated for six months to grace the Luxembourg national pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo in 2010.
