Berlin changes, February to June 1990

The Quadriga atop Brandenburg Gate suffered severe damage during festivities on New Year's Eve 1989/90 and underwent restoration in 1990/1991, when the Iron Cross and Eagle were reinstalled. During the GDR era, the statue of Victoria, the winged godess of victory, held a staff with an oak leaf wreath in her hand.
