Design of the 1971 Flower Carpet

The Flower Carpet is celebrating its 50th anniversary and 22nd edition this year. The design used for this edition is therefore a reference to the first design from 1971. All the elements of this first design are present in the 2022 carpet, including the Saint Michael archangel and the Belgian lion.

'Brussels in Bloom' route

From 1 to 15 August 2022, the centre of Brussels will also be decorated by the 'Brussels in Bloom' flower trail, as a foretaste of the Flower Carpet.

This 25-minute walk, which starts at the Grand-Place, is signposted. It takes visitors through the surrounding streets to discover floral arrangements by Belgian designers.
