Free Derry Corner is a historical landmark in the Bogside neighbourhood of Derry in Northern Ireland. The wall, a free-standing gable wall, lies in the intersection of the Lecky Road, Rossville Street and Fahan Street.

It commemorates Free Derry – a self-declared autonomous nationalist area of Derry that existed between 1969 and 1972.
