The Brussels Flower Carpet is fabulous! Take a look…


This is a 20,000 square foot flower carpet rolled out at the beautiful city square in Brussels, Belgium!

The Brussels Flower Carpet is a very important event that takes place every two years at the Grand-Place, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This year the event celebrated a Latin American theme! It’s design was devoted to the Guanajuato region in Central Mexico which is rich in culture and history.

The complex floral carpet was assembled by 120 volunteers in under 4 hours!  The carpet was filled with half a million flowers such as dahlias, grass and bark, and the famous Belgian begonias from the region of Ghent in Belgium. The work of art lasted from 16 to 19 August!

The flower carpet was designed by an artist named Ana Rosa Aguilar Aguado. She comes from a Mexican town, Uriangato that has a long tradition of creating street carpets made of colored sawdust rather than flowers. The festival in Uriangato is known as the La Octava Noche festival.

Take a look at the design and some of the cultural elements from the state of Guanajuato, Mexico. The artist has succeeded in bringing the heart of Mexico to the heart of Brussels!

There are three suns, a bird, a traditional ornate blue and white plate, many flowers, frogs, lanterns amongst others.
