The National Flag Memorial in Rosario, Argentina, is a monumental complex built near the shore of the Paraná River.

The Monumento has three parts: the Tower or mast, 70 metres high, which commemorates the Revolution of May 1810 and houses Manuel Belgrano's crypt in its base; the Civic Courtyard, which symbolizes the effort of the organization of the state, and the Triumphal Propylaeum, representing the Nation as organized after the 1853 Constitution. Under the Propylaeum there is the Honour Room for the Flags of America.
