Is there anything more Dutch than the tulip? For hundreds of years the beautiful flower has been a symbol for the Netherlands. In the 16th century the flowers were imported from the Ottoman Empire. In the Golden Age the tulip became more and more important and the flower could already be seen in paintings. Everyone knows the stories of tulip mania, when flower bulbs were even used as a means of payment.
Today, flower markets and festivals throughout the country entice tourists and locals with colourful and fragrant bulbs and flowers. Whoever wants to give a memento to someone who emigrates or wants to provide a business gift for a foreign partner, always scores with the Dutch tulip!

The flower symbolizes spring. Partly due to the annual opening of the world-famous Keukenhof flower park in Lisse in March, where a tulip show can be seen next to the kilometre-long fields. The cheerful appearance of the flower makes the interior even more atmospheric. In this category you will find part of the lighting of The Blue Art Barn Lighting with the flower as a starting point.
