Transcription of plaque:

Erected on this dedicated ground in 1943
by a grateful South African people in honour of
the Huguenots at the Cape (1688)
and their invaluable contribution to our nationhood.

The three arches symbolize the Holy Trinity:
the Sun and the Cross form the emblem of the Huguenots

Designed by J. C. Jongens.

The central figure represents the freedom of conscience.

Sculptor: Coert Steynberg.
