The deep-red Stebuklas tile marks the southernmost point of an estimated 2 million-person chain that served as a peaceful protest against Soviet occupation, coined the Baltic Way. The 676 km (420 mi) human chain was formed on August 23, 1989, and stretched through Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania to link their capitals.
