«Colours of life»
Internationally acclaimed florist Geert Pattyn once said: “I have done quite a lot actually but would definitely like to continue for a while. Flowers and plants keep inspiring me. There is so much to see and do and there is so much beauty in the world.”
The theme of this prestigious flower festival will be “Colours of life”. This title reflects the work of the floral masters, and the relationship between public and artist. But it also refers to the inspiration drawn from, and harmony with, the colours of the historical setting and the quality of our Belgian savoir-faire. Moreover, the theme indirectly refers to the uniqueness of the Belgian floral artists who each have their own distinct character. The multicultural nature of Belgium, a melting pot of classical influences and contemporary ideas, will be expressed perfectly.
