The Brandenburg Gate stands at the top of the Unter den Linden and has become the iconic image of Berlin. Between 1961 and 1989 the wall which separated east from west passed right through this point in the city. The figure on the top of the gate is Viktoria, the goddess of victory. The statue was taken down and transported to Paris after the French armies defeated the Prussians. Later, when the Prussians won victory over France they broguht the statue back, placed Viktoria back on top of the gate and renamed the square below Parisier Platz (Paris Square) to demonstrate 'Victory over Paris'.
