Biennial carpet of flowers returns to Brussels for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic

On August 12, for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic forced its cancellation, the Grand Place in central Brussels, Belgium, exhibited a tapestry made up of hundreds of thousands of flowers arranged in intricate designs. According to the event’s website, the flower carpet first started in 1971 and takes place every two years. The huge flower carpet covers 1,680 square meters and was assembled by more than 100 volunteers in less than six hours, organizers said. Credit: Geoffroy Coomans de Brachene via Storyful
