Donation to the International Wall of Friendship

 Hungary plaque

The Hungarian stone was donated by the Hungarian community and presented by Laszlo Deak, president of the Hungarian Association of Tasmania on 24th of August 1987. The stone is bertani dark grey granite with a polished face. Embedded at the top centre is a piece of red marble from Tardos, Hungary salvaged from a block originally obtained for the Wall of Friendship but it was severely damaged during transportation to Tasmania. The Hungarian emblem of a crown and shield is coloured in white green and the fold is incised in the red marble insert. Below is gold-filled engraved text, first in Hungarian and then in English and also the date of presentation.
