Captain Matthew Flinders (1774-1814) was a British naval officer and explorer notable in particular for circumnavigating Australia (the second European to do so, after Abel Tasman, and the first to do it closely enough to observe its coast in detail), identifying it as a continent, and giving it its present name. The statue marks the approximate place of his burial, in what used to be the burial ground of St James Piccadilly. In 1819 building works for the HS2 high speed railway exposed Flinders' coffin and it was determined that he should be reinterred in his home village of Donington, Lincolnshire.
Flinders was accompanied on his voyages by his cat Trim, who is also depicted in the composition.
