Trivia: Austerlitz Insect Pins

Hi Group

Has anyone any idea what that structure is that features on the packaging of Austerlitz Insect Pins? My guess is it is some sort of monument? Could it be something to do with the Battle of Austerlitz?

It is indeed. It is the memorial at Slavkov u Brna (german name 'Austerlitz') in Moravia.
