First National Bank of Atlanta
City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs
The First National Bank of Atlanta commissioned “Phoenix” in 1970. The Phoenix was the original symbol for the bank ever since the conclusion of the Civil War. The sculpture was relocated from the grounds of the bank and later donated to the City of Atlanta in the 1980s when the bank merged with Wachovia and the Phoenix was no longer used as its symbol. Still, the Phoenix is important to the city’s identity as it remembers a city rising from the ashes of destruction.
