The imposing monument is built in 1979 in the entry of the town of Veles, on it's right side. It remains an eternal tomb of a hundred revolutionaries of Veles, which during the Second World War succumbed in the name of the realization of the old dream for freedom of the Macedonian people. The monument built in shape of poppy flower is work of academic sculptor Ljubomir Denkovic and the architect Savo Subotin. In the middle of the interior is placed a symbol of freedom, in form of a flowering tree. On the wall is placed the most complex mosaic in Macedonia that is created by Petar Mazev, an academic painter. On a total surface of 220 square meters, the author painted the history of the Macedonian people, from the epopee of Ilinden through social turbulences between the two world wars, the period of the popular war of liberation until the victory over the Fascism, the rebuilding in Macedonia after the war and freedom like a culminating acquisition. The mosaic is composed of stone and painted with natural and artificial of pasta Venice. Several colors dominate the mosaic functioning like distinguished line of the symbols and forms.
