What do football and roses have in common?

The idea to support your favorite teams in the World Cup with roses started years before with dyed ones. But for Russia 2018, BellaRosa - a fresh cut roses grower and exporter - presents us the complete 32 teams' flags designed with their preserved roses. These flowers are 100 percent natural, and just as lovely as the fresh-cut Ecuadorian roses used to make them. They come in all sizes: small, medium, large and even giant ones. In addition, the array of colors they come in means they can be used in nearly infinite combinations.

These roses are carefully selected and handcrafted to preserve their beauty for months and even years, according to Gonzalo Luzuriaga, Executive President of BellaRosa. The farm is in production since 1996 and located near Quito, at 9,000 feet above sea level. BellaRosa group (BellaRosa and Rose Connection) grows 92 varieties of roses on its 125 acres, actually serving 62 countries in 4 continents. 

As a floriculturist, Luzuriaga also tells us that the natural compounds of the roses are replaced with protective additives that maintain the original beauty of the flower, allowing them to be enjoyed much longer. Although preservation methods have been around for decades, each company has developed its own formulas that further improve the quality, color and durability of the final product.

Preserved roses do not require any maintenance - no pruning, watering, or need for light - that's to say, they do not need any special care. The production process and all its components are human and nature-friendly, having minimal impact on the natural environment.


"Next time you need to create an exceptional flower arrangement, keep in mind this ingenious alternative to fresh-cut roses, one which will maintain its beauty and strength for a very long time."
