Orlando’s Column (Orlandov Stup) in Dubrovnik is a well known monument situated in the very heart of the Old Town, in the centre of Luža Square  right in front of St Blaise’s Church.

The column, erected in 1418, features armoured knight Orlando who according to the legend, helped the people of old Dubrovnik (Ragusa) defeat invaders in the middle ages and therefore helped Dubrovnik to remain a free trade city-state. Being a monument to freedom, nowadays the column also features Libertas (freedom) flag of town’s Summer festival as well as St Blaise festival flag.
