On July 13, 2011, H.R.H. Hereditary Grand Duke Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg was in San Francisco, CA to celebrate 25 years of the Luxembourg Consulate in the city by the bay. The handsome prince met with the mayor of San Francisco along with dozens of other local dignitaries. During the celebration meeting:
Mayor Lee presented the Crown Prince with a proclamation to mark the visit and celebrate the 25th anniversary by declaring July 13, 2011 as “Consulate General of Luxembourg Day in San Francisco.” As part of the gift exchange, the Mayor presented the Crown Prince with a portfolio of pre-1906 earthquake images of San Francisco.
The ceremony concluded with the presentation by the Crown Prince to the City of a copper etched print by Luxembourg-born and current Bay Area resident, scientist and artist Philippe Emmanuel Lamesch. The print, entitled, “The Gate,” symbolizes the international diversity of Luxembourg and San Francisco and their role as a welcoming gateway in opening new opportunities for their residents and businesses.
