Port Elizabeth icons, new and old

The Donkin Reserve and Route 67 truly are two of Port Elizabeth’s iconic attractions.  The one is historic and linked to the very early history of the city while the second brings together all the aspects of the city’s cultures, history, peoples and art.  The pyramid is actually called the Donkin Memorial and was built in 1820 by Sir Rufane Donkin in memory of his late wife after whom he named the town.  Next to it stands the tallest flag pole in South Africa (65 meters) flying the biggest South African flag (10m x 15m) in the world.
