The sculpture in the middle and the top shows that the people of all walks of life building the dyke. At the foot of the monument, there are two fountain ponds. One represents the water level of 119.72 meters in 1932, the other represent the water level of 120.30 meters in 1957. In 1932, when the city was invaded by the Japanese, the authorities did little to build the bank. In contrast, in 1957, Harbin people worked along the bank day and night for over a month to strength the bank. In the end, the flood gave its way and the city was safe and sound. So, the fountains imply that the people of Harbin have tamed the flood to benefit the people. At the back, 20 columns forming a semi-circle embody Harbin people in the 20th century creating miracles. The Monument Square is also a place for holding political, cultural and sports activities because it is a symbol of Harbin. It manifests that the heroic, hardworking and intelligent Harbin people will strive forward for a more prosperous future.
