Kosovo's iconic Newborn Monument commemorates the small country's independence from Serbia. Unveiled on February 17, 2008, it consists of 3 m (10 ft)of block letters spelling out the word "Newborn." The letters were originally painted bright yellow and later re-painted with the flags of countries that recognized Kosovo's independence, which today amounts to just over half of UN member states. The monument is repainted differently every year and unveiled on the anniversary of the country's independence. Bring your camera along to capture photos of this significant artwork that's featured prominently on front pages all over the world.

Newborn Monument Reviews
Una pena que esté lleno de pintadas y tan poco cuidado. No obstante, merece la pena visitarlo y pasear por el entorno en que se ubica. more »A pity it's full of graffiti and so little care. However, it is worth visiting and wandering around the surrounding environment.
Interesting history behind the monument. I like that they repaint it every year - very current. Makes for a good photo! more »
New Born is a sculpture in letters, is a kind of art for honor of Kosovo independence. You can type your name in those letters or any other "meme" you like. From time to time these letters are painted with new colors or with new art.
This is the look in 2019. I think previous years had better designs but I like the idea of it changing each year.
