Canada’s gift from Holland – and a welcomed Spring visitor
Every spring, tulips from Holland bloom in Canada’s capital, which is
the home of the world’s largest tulip festival. Not only are the flowers
a telltale sign of spring, they are the symbol of friendship between
nations. In 1945-46, Holland presented over 100,000 prized tulip bulbs
to Canada in thanks for Canada welcoming Holland’s Crown Princess and
her daughters in 1940, and for Canadian soldiers’ efforts to liberate
Holland during the Second World War.
In 1940, Queen Wilhelmina sent Crown Princess Juliana out of harm’s way
to Canada. On 19 January 1943, the only royal baby ever born in North
America was born in a room at the Ottawa Civic Hospital. The birth was
greeted with hope and strengthened the ties of friendship between
Canadians and the Dutch.
If you’re lucky, you may spot a pretty, brightly-coloured ladybug
inhabiting a vibrant tulip in the spring. Both are warmly welcomed by
gardeners as harbingers of spring. The two also share a unique
relationship. The ladybug uses the tulip as shelter from predators and
as a source of sustenance; much like how Canada was to the Dutch
Princesses. In return, the ladybug-one of nature’s most effective
pesticides-keeps garden plants and flowers healthy throughout the
