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 was even more special, as the famous carpet of flowers was designed to celebrating its 20th anniversary and the 150 years of Belgo-Japanese friendship. It is therefore perfectly natural that the organisers have chosen to let the colours of Japan inspire the design of the carpet.

Spanning 75 meters long and 24 meters wide, it consisted of 1,800 square meters of begonias interspersed with dahlias, grasses, and bark, with each square meter containing about 300 blooms.
