Originally, the monument's designers conceptualized it as a triumphal "Friedenstor" (or "victory arch").
Among historians, there exists much speculation as to precisely when there was a shift in the symbolism of Brandenburg Gate.
Built in the borough of Mitte in the heart of Berlin, the Gate represents more than 200 years of prosperity, turmoil, and peace.
Throughout the course of this long history, it's only natural that public opinion about the Gate would change.
Some say that after 1945, and even after the fall of the Berlin Wall, that Brandenburg Gate became a symbol of Germany's separation.
Of course, it's true that since the Wall's construction in August of 1961 and during the Wall's existence, the Gate became the sad symbol of a divided Berlin.
