GREAT BRITAIN

The white, windowless Great Britain pavilion is dominated by an unusual tower displaying a three-dimensional Union Jack. It is located near the France and Federal Republic of Germany pavilions, and is separated by the Expo-Express track. The pavilion's exhibits display the development of the country, from pre-Roman times to today. Enormous banners have been hung in tribute to a number of important male igures who have left their mark on Great Britain's history in such fields as the arts, science and politics.

 



As the music of the Beatles is played, visitors can learn about the daily life of British people and the cultural excitement the country is experiencing, while getting a taste of some quintessentially British humour. Visitors can also take a break and enjoy a cup of that most British of beverages, tea! The country's main industries and technological achievements are also featured in displays that include the engine of the famous Concorde. Great Britain's international influence, especially in terms of political institutions, is highlighted. A message of peace emanates from a series of giant metal sculptures that represent human beings communicating with each other.
