The Legacy

The Canadian Tulip Festival is produced by the Canadian Tulip Legacy, a non-profit charitable organization. It’s purpose is to celebrate the historic gift of tulips from the Dutch Royal Family as a symbol of international friendship. The Dutch Princess Margriet was born in Ottawa during World War II – the only Royal ever born in North America. The tulip symbolizes this legacy as well as the role of Canadian troops in the liberation of The Netherlands 71 years ago.
