The Victory Monument is a military monument in Bangkok, Thailand.

The monument was erected in June 1941 to commemorate the Thai “victory” in the Franco-Siamese War, a brief conflict waged against the French colonial authorities in Indo-China, which resulted in Thailand annexing some territories in western Cambodia and northern and southern Laos.

The Victory Monument uses indigenous Thai forms and symbols. The central obelisk, although originally Egyptian, has been frequently used in Europe and America for national and military memorials.

The Victory monument is located in Ratchathewi district of Bangkok, at the intersection of Phahonyothin Road, Phaya Thai Road, and Ratchawithi Road.
