Next year’s flower carpet to celebrate Japanese relations

The biannual decorative flower exposition will be at Brussels’ Grand Place as of 12 August 2016. Japanese companies will be sponsoring the flourishing tapestry, of which the design will be revealed at the end of May next year.

Brussels’ first flower carpet was created in 1971. Since then it’s become a biannual tradition. About 600,000 begonias will be used to form the showpiece, amounting to 1,800 square metres of floridness. Last year’s theme was Turkey, to celebrate 50 years of Turkish immigration to Belgium.
