Netherlands: Week dedicated to flowers and grandparents

From September 28 to October 3, the Dutch pavilion is the scene for a full week of one of the key symbols of the Netherlands, and which also represents the energy for life, the great theme of the Expo: flowers.

The Dutch champion of floral design Dini Holtrop (author also of the flowered wings, donated to the pavilion of the Holy See in occasion of the initiative of exchange gifts between the pavilions) and her international team of expert florists will take care of the construction of the Holland pavilion, Country of flowers for excellence, and will hold a series of demonstrations on floral art during the week.

Within this initiative, activities related to Grandparents Day will also take place, that will be celebrated in the Pavilion Friday October 2 with music and workshops for children with plants; the project fits perfectly in this setting, thanks to the bond that flowers and plants are able to create between the different generations.

This week full of flowers and colors will culminate Saturday night October 3, hosting the famous champion Clarence Seedorf, to whom Holland has decided to dedicate a new rose rewarding his commitment to sport and social inclusion. The baptism of the new Rose variety, produced by hybridizer Dummen Orange and inspired by the colors of Holland, will be held in the pavilion's glasshouse at 20:00 hours.

The flower week in the Dutch pavilion at the World Expo is possible thanks to support of the Dutch Association of Wholesalers in flowers and plants (VGB), their members participants, the Felinifoundation, Westlandmarketing and worldexpomilaan2015.
