Next spring, a very special flower bulb — the Liberation75 tulip — will bloom across Canada. The Liberation75 tulip honours the Canadian men and women who served during the Second World War and is a symbol of the enduring Dutch-Canadian friendship. The Canadian Tulip Festival, the embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the National Capital Commission are celebrating this special 75th anniversary with the Liberation75 commemorative planting campaign — 1.1 million tulips honouring 1.1 million Canadians.
