Canada 150 Tulips
".....red and white tulip created to honour Canada’s 150th birthday was unveiled at Commissioners Park. It was engineered to resemble the Canadian flag, and you can think of it as a personal “thank you” from the Netherlands.
“The tulip represents gratitude and the long-standing friendship between Canada and the Netherlands. Blooming in the colours of Canada’s flag, Canada 150 tulips will bring both pride and joy to gardens and communities from coast to coast to coast,” said His Excellency Cees Kole, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in a news release."
