The 'Swans in Flight' sculpture by David Wynne was completed in 1968. The bronze statue had been commissioned for new Civic Centre in Newcastle. It is based on Hans Hartvig Seedorff Pederson's 'The Swans from the North', a Scandinavian poem - the Five Swans, representing the five Scandinavian countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Finland).
