This work of art commemorates the 600th anniversary of the Kalmar Union.

The sculpture depicts a group of medieval people. Furthest in toward the wall are three representatives of the Scandinavian countries, Norway, Denmark and Sweden. In the centre stands Queen Margrethe, the Queen of the Union, surrounded by a ring of stars, with three crowns above her head. To her left is Erik of Pomerania, and to her right, a Norwegian bishop. The figures in front display examples of medieval clothing and occupations.

The Union Monument is the work of Rolf Friberg, and was dedicated on 14 June 1997 by the five Nordic heads of state.
