(BUCKINGHAM PALACE--6c) Canada Gate in Green Park, near Buckingham Palace, London, UK. Canada Gate (or commonly called Maroto Gate) and Canada Memorial are located in Green Park, London. It was also part of the memorial to Queen Victoria, commissioned in 1905 and completed in 1911. Canada Gate has the emblems of the seven Canadian provinces. The gates have an ornate style or design, similar to the other ones on the palace grounds.The Canada Memorial erected in 1992, behind the gate, is a tribute to the 113,663 members of the Canadian Forces killed during the First and Second World Wars. The gate stands to the north side of the "rond point" at the junction with Constitution Hill; today, a congested roundabout, but occasionally closed to traffic when the Mall is required for state processions from the palace. From the gate, a long double avenue stretches the width of the park through to Piccadilly.
