A magnificent blue water lily (nil manel) floral display lent unique Sri Lankan flavor to the International Floral Exhibit at National Cathedral’s Flower Mart held on May 5 and 6 in Washington D.C.

Designed by the Embassy staff especially for the annual spring event, the floral arrangement salutes the national flower of Sri Lanka. The blue water lilies which were especially flown in from Sri Lanka bejeweled the traditional oil lamp in ornate bursts, adorned with white roses and cascading frangipanis. Sri Lanka was one of the 19 countries that presented a flower display and the only South Asian country to do so.

Held annually in May, the National Cathedral’s Flower Mart is now in its 78th year and is considered Washington D.C.’s Premier Family Spring Festival, welcoming thousands of visitors, young and old.
