The Yser Towers (Dutch: IJzertoren) are a monument near the Yser river at Diksmuide in Belgium.
It was built to commemorate the soldiers killed on the Yser Front in World War I and pacifism but subsequently became an important political symbol for the Flemish Movement.
The original monument was constructed in 1930 but was destroyed in 1946 as a result of its political associations with Flemish nationalist collaboration after World War II.
The current tower was rebuilt alongside the remains of the original and was finished in 1965. It remains a site of political significance to Flemish nationalists and is the center for their annual Yser Pilgrimage (IJzerbedevaart).
