Description:
World-wide, permanent historic markers, plaques, works of art, trees, or some other public acknowledgement, erected, made or placed to celebrate or commemorate a business or corporation's anniversary celebration or some other entity, event, group, people or organization's milestone or celebration.
Expanded Description:

Waymarks should document through some type of public marker or dedicated object whose specific purpose is to recognize or celebrating a business, corporate body, organization or individual celebrating an anniversary of its incorporation, date of inception or birth. This category is not for plaques or markers which recognize inaugural openings.

Example

This is a nice example of a business celebrating its one hundredth year of incorporation. This would be the art shot.

100 Years

This would be the "general area" shot.

100 Years Engineers

Also accepted are centennial or bicentennial commemorations of an individual's birth.
