Brussel’s Grand Place got so much attractions as volunteers constructed a huge “Flower Carpet” made up with about 600,000 flowers. This unique flower carpet is laid on the square every two years, as a tribute to African tapestry weavers.
According to the website dedicated to floral tradition, the carpets are created from locally-grown begonias, cultivated in the Ghent area and carefully chosen for their quality, durability and bold colors. Every carpet is based on a different theme, ranging from commemorations of historic events to recreations of town’s coat of arms to volunteered designs from horticultural organizations.
