Tank Man, or the Unknown Rebel, is the nickname of an anonymous man who stood in front of a column of Chinese Type 59 tanks the morning after the Chinese military forcibly removed protesters from in and around Beijing's Tiananmen Square on June 5, 1989. The man achieved widespread international recognition due to the videotape and photographs taken of the incident. 

Internationally, the image of the lone man in front of the tank has come to symbolize the events at Tiananmen Square in 1989, and is widely considered one of the most iconic images of the 20th century.
