A memorial garden is being created in honour of the loyalists who fled from America during the American Revolution and fought alongside the British in the War of 1812.

The United Empire Loyalists’ Memorial Garden, named after the group that commemorates the loyalists, will prominently feature red geraniums, a symbol of the sacrifices the loyalists made, according to a release.

The United Empire Loyalists marked their 100th anniversary on May 27.

The garden will be on the grounds of Government House, the residence of Manitoba Lt.-Gov Philip Lee. It will be unveiled on Aug. 12.
