The constitution should guarantee the protection of historical heritage by making it incumbent upon governments and citizens to conserve it in the best way possible before it passes on to future generations. This would apply to structures and artifacts in public and private possession as well as to symbols which form part of our collective memory (e.g. the George Cross on the national flag). At the same time, the constitution should bar any legislation which could endanger such heritage, which was entrusted to us by those before us so that we could care for it and pass it on to future generations.
