In 1920, an unknown soldier fallen in in the First World War was buried under the Arc de Triomphe. As countless soldiers were lost in the war or no longer identifiable, this grave was meant to be representative for all of them. An eternal flame on the grave symbolizes the continuous remembrance.

To date, the grave is place of many national ceremonies.
