VOGELENZANG, the Netherlands – During the Easter weekend, in the Dutch village of Vogelenzang (the name means ‘Birds singing’), the traditional flower mosaic takes place. On this occasion, a group of local mahjong fanatics made a red, or rather a purple, dragon, to ask attention for their mahjong demonstration.
The flower mosaic competition has been a tradition in the village for a number of years. Flowers are the third largest export product of the Netherlands. In 2015, Holland earned 5.7 billion euros on flower export, according to the Central Bureau for Statistics.
