The Toppling of the Saddam Statue (Iraq)

The Statue of Saddam Hussein was a symbol of his presidency and rule over Iraq. It was built in April of 2002 for his 65th birthday.
On 9 April 2003, representing probably the greatest symbol of the fall of Saddam's regime, a group of Iraqi’s and US Marines gathered and brought the statue down. They hung a pre-1991 Gulf War Iraqi flag and danced in central Badghad’s Firdos Square.
