Cool! Was led to 'google' it ... thought I'd share what I found.
Independence Archin Barbados was built in 1987 to commemorate Barbados' 21st Anniversary of Independence gained on November 30th 1966.
It is located in the capital - Bridgetown.
The pillars showcase two important national symbols - the flying fish and pelican - along with the Pride of Barbados flower. Across the top of the arch is the islands Coat of Arms bearing the national motto 'Pride and Industry'. At the base of the arch is the National Pledge.
