The statue of Linda reminds us of the young widow’s grief at the loss of her husband

Linda

 

“The statue of Linda reminds us of the young widow’s grief at the loss of her husband, Kalev, as told in the Estonian national epic ‘Kalevipoeg’. The red flag on the tallest tower of Tallinn symbolizes the struggle of the Estonian working-people for Soviet power in the past, and their happy present day.”

– R. Pangsepp, Tallinn, Eesti Raamat, Tallinn, 1974
