The traditional flower festival in the eastern Hungarian city of Debrecen got under way on Tuesday with a carnival march including 18 floats with flower compositions and ten domestic and 17 foreign art groups, organisers told MTI.

The flower compositions included representations of the Hungarian crown, Debrecen’s coat of arms and the Legend of Saint King Ladislaus.

Debrecen’s twin cities, German Paderborn, Japanese Toyama and Romania’s Oradea (Nagyvarad) also set up floats.

Art groups from Belgium, Colombia, Croatia, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Romania, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey and Ukraine participated alongside ten Hungarian groups, organisers said.

The day will close with concerts and fireworks, they said.
