One Flower for Each Year
It was no surprise that the basic theme of the 2019 edition had a floral flavour! Visitors found 40 big flower filled vases, with each year represented at FLÓRA by one flower. The exhibition has been prepared and managed since 1991 by the company Kulla.
There were 40 vases with 40 different flowers of 40 years. This year was the plant of Flora Magnolia. In previous years such as 1978 it was tulip Bratislava, a Dutch selection, with a salmon orange colour.
The official opening took place on April 4th at exhibition area Incheba Bratislava. At the festival opening was the Ambassador of the Netherlands, Henk Cor van der Kwast, President of the region Juraj Droba and other guests from political and cultural organisations.
The guest of Flora was the Agricultural Attaché of the Dutch Embassy in Warsaw, Martijn Homan (also attaché for PL, SK and CZ).
The exhibition organised a floristic competition, the Flora Cup in two categories, seniors and juniors There were prizes with gold, silver and bronze in each category (one gold senior, one gold junior etc). 'Wedding' was the theme (table decoration, bouquet and flower display).
