“The Flower Carpet that is unfurled every other year on the Grand-Place of Brussels always fills me with great emotion! Because of its colours and the extraordinary design of the original carpet that is its basis, of course, but also and especially because of the renown of this work – ephemeral but so admired – throughout the world. Allow me here to thank the creator of the graphic design, the horticulturists, the numerous artists and artisans who have participated in this new edition, and all the volunteers, veritable magicians who for two days have patiently placed the hundreds of thousands of flowers that make up this masterpiece. To the delight of all those who will come to discover it. Welcome, everyone, to the Grand-Place of Brussels!”
