Flower carpet in Brussels
More than 600 000 thousand live flowers were planted today at the central square in Brussels to open the 21st Flower Carpet Festival.
The festival is traditionally held every two years in August - every even year. The square is covered with a thin net on which the painting and arrangement of each flower is printed. 100 volunteers plant the flowers at a specific location for about four hours. The color event is accompanied by numerous concerts and other cultural events on the square. The carpet is being prepared for several months because it is a real challenge for landscape architects to keep for as long as 5 days fresh as many flowers. A special place is the begonias, which is the flower - a symbol of Belgium.
The theme and inspiration for the motifs in the carpet this year are from Mexico, Guanajuato. Every year there is the La Octava Noche festival, during which the locals fold the streets with a carpet of painted sawdust. The area is characterized by the rich culture and precious crafts of the many peoples living there.
