A massive Turkish carpet of flowers in Brussels


NEWS/GLOBAL

Turks in Belgium used a novel way to celebrate their 50th anniversary in their adopted home. They created a gigantic carpet of flowers at the Grand Place next to the town hall in Brussels.

Watched by large crowds, 100 volunteers took four days to hand-make the 75m long, 25m wide flower carpet, placing some 750,000 begonias, grass and other materials into patterns that reflected a classic Uşak rug design. Uşak is a city located in western Anatolia, 210 km outside of Izmir, famed since Ottoman times for its fine Oriental rugs and stunning decorative patterns.

Brussels puts on a massive flower festival at the Grand Place for a few days in August every two years. In 2014, Turks were allowed to use the occasion to honour the 1964 bilateral agreement that allowed them to migrate to Belgium as ‘guest workers’. Five decades later, it is thought 220,000 people of Turkish origin live in Belgium, a quarter of them in Brussels. The display concluded on 17 August.
