Victoria Centennial Fountain,[1][2] also known as Back Fountain or simply Centennial Fountain, is installed outside the British Columbia Parliament Buildings in Victoria, British Columbia.[3] The fountain was designed by Robert Savery in 1962, and commemorates the four colonies and territories that formed British Columbia. The bronze sculptures of a bear, eagle, gull, sea otter, raven, and wolf represent the province's geography and history.[4]
