Did you know that the annual Ottawa Tulip Festival is a monumental celebration of past events that occurred between Canada and the Netherlands? This long lasting tradition began during World War 2 when the Duchess of the Netherlands, Princess Juliana, fled for refuge to Canada. In 1943, the Princess gave birth to Princess Margriet on Canadian soil in Ottawa. A part of the hospital was proclaimed Dutch territory so that the Princess could be born on Dutch soil and thus retain her right to the throne. This started a lovely companionship and tradition between Canada and the Netherlands. To thank all Canadians every year, the royal family would send over 10,000 Tulips as a gift of gratitude. Now, the beautiful city of Ottawa is pleased to hold the largest display of tulips in North America every may. This year, prolong your Ottawa Tulip Festival experience by bringing Ottawa’s spring colours to your home!
