The monument erected in 1995 on the 50th anniversary of the VE day explains what the fountain represent:
"The sculpture depicts the five petal points of a tulip. An emblem of Holland. Surrounded by a circle of people with joined hands and out-stretched arms the figures evolve a celebration of brotherhood, liberation, freedom and hope. Renewal is symbolized by the jets of water in summer and the patterns of ice in winter."

Netherland tulips have a special meaning for Canadians. There is even a Canadian Tulip Festival.
