The 2012 Olympians were each given a bouquet of flowers.
The bouquet is sectioned into boldly colored quadrants to mirror the 2012 logo. These are separated by typical British food ingredients which also provide an eclectic fragrance.
Pink Rose – Aqua
Yellow Rose – Illios
Orange Rose – Marie Claire
Green Rose – Wimbledon
English Lavender, Rosemary, Apple Mint and Wheat
All of the components of the bouquet had to be able to be grown in Britain, a key aim for the host country.
British grown herbs, lavender, apple mint and rosemary. These provide an eclectic fragrance which is important to enhance the ‘moment’ of triumph for the athlete without causing an allergic reaction which some heavily scented flowers often do. Along with these herbs, they have included wheat, a source of energy, to reflect the ‘energy lines’ of the London 2012 theme that has been an influence throughout the design process. The bright and vibrant colour theme that not only reflects the colours used in the 2012 logo but also throughout the London 2012 games. This vivid combination creates visual impact.
