The monument of Peace and Unity

The monument of Peace and Unity.

This centennial monument of unity and peace is dedicated to the people of Davao. The different natives or lumads of Davao. The Muslim who came and settled along Davao’s coast and the Christians led by Don Jose Oyanguren who came in 1848 to establish the first Christians settlement here.

They, people of diverse cultures and from different places who came and lived together as one, made Davao what it is today. We their descendants, beneficiaries and present Davaoenos honor them for their legacy of unity and peace…. Their most valuable legacy to us.

So goes the text on the marker of this monument.

This was unveiled on June 12, 1998 in celebration of the centennial year (1898-1992), this is artfully mounted at the frontage of the Sanguniang Panlungsod building along San Pedro St.


  1. diyan pala iyan sa davao..sana nga may peace and unity na sa ating bansa..pero sa nangyayari sa ngayon palagay mo ba ay magkakaroon pa ng peace and unity iyong mga parte sa politika..iyong iba nga hindi nabibigyan ng hustisya.....mahirap bigyan ng hustisya ang naapi lalo na kung ang umapi ay maimpluwensya..

  2. It's a great sculpture with a lot of history and symbolism! Nice shot on a beautiful, sunny day! Happy New Year!
