The Netherlands is the garden and flower patch of Europe. The two things that symbolize the Netherlands are tulips and windmills; Europeans say that it is not spring until the flowers bloom in the Netherlands. The Dutch Garden was build with Suncheon Bay’s hopes of announcing to the world that spring has come to Suncheon, the world’s ecological capital.
Tulips and windmills have come to represent the Netherlands.
Tulips have come to represent the Netherlands, but the flowers are originally from the Middle East and Southeastern Europe.
The name “tulip” comes from the turban the men of its hometown wear, and they were considered sacred flowers that protected from bad luck.
The national flower of the Netherlands, the tulip boasts a great number of species whose colors range from red to deep purple
or yellow, or even white or brown. Tulip patterns come in solids, stripes, and irregular stripes. The various shapes and colors show nature at its most dazzling.
The windmill is used to pump water. Windmill design and technology made great strides in the Netherlands where the sea level is higher than the land. There are many different shapes as well, but the most popular ones in the Netherlands have four wings.
The Dutch Garden also has the Hiddink Hope Tree, a walnut tree planted by soccer coach Guus Hiddink, who led the Korean national soccer team to the semi-finals of the 2002 World Cup.
