The Netherland people never forget Canada
The Dutch bred a tulip just for Canada to celebrate our 150th!
“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. More than 200,000 of the ‘Canada 150 tulips’ will bloom across the National Capital Region this spring. Next year 300,000 will be showcased in the NCC’s flower beds, with thousands more expected to be planted in community gardens across Canada.
