Flower Carpet 2016
A 20th Flower Carpet on the theme of Japan to celebrate 150 years of Belgo-Japanese friendship!
Every two years, in the month of August, the Brussels Grand-Place is adorned with its most beautiful attire and becomes a gigantic ocean of flowers. This year will be even more special, as the famous carpet of flowers will be celebrating its 20th anniversary!
In 2016, Belgium and Japan celebrated 150 years of diplomatic and friendly relations. It was therefore perfectly natural that the organisers had chosen to let the colours of Japan inspire the design of the carpet.
