London 2012 Olympics: Ceremonial Flowers


The 2012 Summer Olympics is well under way.  Besides watching the athletes compete, fans can also look forward to the Victory Ceremonies for the medal winners. Along with the medal, the winning athlete also receives a ceremonial bouquet. Over 4000 floral bouquets will be presented over the course of the Games. The victory bouquet was designed by Jane Packer, an internationally renowned UK florist.  The flower choices represent the vibrancy of the Games. The four sections of the bouquet hold a different variety of rose, an iconic British flower. As well, the bouquet is divided with traditional herbs including mint, rosemary, English lavender and wheat. Needless to say, all the flowers and herbs were grown in England.
