Tokyo 2020 has revealed the designs of the bouquets that will be presented to medallists at the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, which will be created using flowers grown mainly in the areas most affected by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.

The bouquets will consist of bright and vibrant colours that will appeal to a global audience. Special-edition versions of the Olympic and Paralympic mascots, Miraitowa and Someity, will be attached to the bouquets.

The Nippon Flower Council, a body that incorporates flower producers, distributors, retailers and traditional ikebana flower-arrangement designers in Japan, proposed the designs for the bouquets, 5,000 of which will be prepared for the Tokyo 2020 Games.
