A building, monument, statue or other edifice to celebrate a war or victory, or (predominating in modern times) to commemorate those who died or were injured in a war.

How to map

Set a node node at the center of the war memorial or an area area along its outline. Add historic=memorial, memorial=war_memorial & memorial:conflict=*

When the memorial can be clearly defined with another value (such as memorial=statue for a war memorial statue), the following tagging can be used: memorial=statue + war_memorial=yes [1] [2]

Tags to use in combination

  • name=* - The primary name: in general, the most prominent signposted name or the most common name in the local language(s)
  • inscription=* - Text which is written on an object
  • memorial:conflict=* - Specifies conflicts that a memorial is linked with
