Eternal flames are most often used as a symbol to acknowledge and remember a person or event of national significance, or a group of brave and noble people connected to some event, or even a laudable goal such as international peace.

The monument is a large steel sculpture which symbolizes the Flame of Freedom burning eternally. It is behind the Pacific War Memorial Dome of Peace, on a raised platform above a reflecting pool.

Designed by Aristides Dimetrios, the sculpture commemorates the sacrifices, and the heroic struggle of the US and Philippines to preserve freedom for future generations.
