Built in recognition of Stawnichy's Meat Processing, a sausage factory which has been in Mundare for 50 years and is famous for their Keilbassa (Ukrainian sausage).
The Sausage cost about $120,000 to build and erect. It was four years in the making and was built to withstand 160 km/h winds.
It is surrounded by four flags (Canadian, Alberta, Mundare's, and the Stawnichy Flag).
