In celebration of the 50th anniversary since the first Turkish migrant workers arrived in Belgium, a huge Turkish carpet made of flowers has been placed in the middle of a popular touristic square.

The carpet measuring 75 meters by 25 meters was put together by up to 100 people in the capital Brussels, which hosts around 220,000 Turks.

Welcoming the carpet as an important step in promoting Turkish art and culture, Brussels mayor Yvan Mayeur announced the display at Grand Place Square, which will last until August 17, as a gesture of good will to the country’s Turkish population.
