Every two years people can admire the carpet of flowers on the Grand Place in Brussels. This year, 700,000 begonias form the largest tapestry of the Savonnerie the world: a tribute to the French presidency of the European Union.


.
Since 1971, it is the 16th carpet of flowers on the Grand Place in Brussels. In recent years, the flower carpet has become one of the biggest attractions of Brussels.


.
This year, the flower carpet designed by floral architect Mark Schautteet is inspired by the tapestry of the French Savonnerie,
which dates from the 17th century.  700,000 begonias form a
colourfum motif on which appears the patron saint Saint-Michel
and the iris of the Brussels Region.


.
One hundred volunteers have brought flowers on the Grand Place.
For the floral carpet of flowers to be perfect, the design is
fully represented in size on a transparent plastic perforated
to create a micro-humid climate which must keep fresh flowers
and colorful.  The official opening will be accompanied by music
created specially for the occasion by the composer Gregory Dune.
