National Tulip Day 2017
On Saturday January 22nd we celebrated National Tulip Day in the Netherlands. This is the start of the tulip season in the flower shops around the country. It is celebrated by a huge pop up tulip garden on Dam Square in Amsterdam. Around the 200.000 tulips are set up by a large group of volunteers and every one is allowed to pick tulips for free during the afternoon until the garden is empty. My colleague Rik interviewed a lot of people visiting the National Tulip Day 2017 and asked them two questions … “Where are you from and what is your favorite tulip color.”
A colorful design inspired by the Dutch Design 2017 year:
