A resolution to name the street after the extravagant Queen frontman was backed by 49 out of 53 city councillors; four abstained. The step was noted online by the band’s guitarist, Brian May.

Freddie Mercury Avenue street signs were unveiled at a low-key ceremony on Friday. The event was attended by fans of Queen, Warsaw councillors and the British ambassador to Poland, Jonathan Knott.

The ceremony was held two days ahead of the 28th anniversary of Freddie Mercury's death.

On Sunday, fans came together at the site to commemorate the artist, famous for his delivery of fist-punching rock anthems.

The initiator of the project, Piotr Otrębski, a journalist, said: “The idea came from the heart.”

He added: “I am a big fan of Queen, and the music of this group has been with me since time immemorial. It's universal, it has timeless values. That's why I decided that it deserves to be commemorated also in Warsaw. Last year, during one of my meetings with Queen fans, I proposed to somehow commemorate Freddie in a public space in the capital.”

The avenue is located in central Warsaw, close to the Royal Łazienki Park and Ujazdowski Palace. Streets named after legendary Beatles members George Harrison and John Lennon are located nearby.

Otrębski said: “It's a place with tradition, history and meets the criteria that we had in mind – that it must be near a park, providing opportunities for various anniversary activities.”
