Using the debris of the dynamited Tower, this Gate of Peace was built in 1950. The iron wreaths near the entrance remember the Flemish soldiers who were punished and sent to the camps of Orne, Auvours, (in France) … because of their conviction. On the four corners of the Pax Gate stand the statues by Karel Aubroeck which were meant for the first tower. They depict the fallen front soldiers Renaat De Rudder, Joe English, Edward and Frans Van Raemdonck, Lode De Boninge and Frans Van der Linden.
