“Let us be strong in the resolve to stand firmly for freedom and justice in an unsettled world”.
This message was given by Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery on September 13, 1948 when he ignited the freedomfire.
This happened during a ceremony in Portsmouth, from where the fire was transferred immediately afterwards to Normandy, where it was given a place where it burns permanently in the city of Caen. Caen is located in the area of the D-Day beaches.
On 4 May 2018, the Freedom Flame tulip was given its official name during a baptismal ritual, in which the tulip was christened by the British Second World War veteran Raymond Lord together with the mayor of Wageningen; Mr Van Rumund . The baptism took place in the Grand Church of Wageningen. The Grand Church has long been part of the commemorative programme for 4 May in Wageningen. The city of Wageningen occupies a special place, as part of the commemoration of the Second World War. After all, the surrender of the Germans in the Netherlands is coordinated and signed here in Hotel de Wereld. Since that moment, there has been an annual commemoration of that moment through commemorative ceremonies on 4 May and the liberation festival and Defilé on 5 May.
In addition, since 1948 the fire of freedom has been kept burning here; the original FreedomFlame.
We at DutchFlowerbulbs.com are proud to carry the Tulip Freedom Flame in our inventory.
