Tokyo 2020 commemorative gift (Olympic victory bouquet)

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games will present a commemorative gift to medallists at Tokyo 2020 later this year.
The gifts used will be ‘victory bouquets’, and will feature bright colours to encapsulate the medallists’ glorious moment of victory with people around the world.
However, despite being a common sight throughout the history of the Olympic Games, Tokyo 2020 will be the first time since London 2012 that a host city will use victory bouquets – and they hold great significance too.
The flowers used for the bouquets for Tokyo 2020 are grown mainly in areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, and it’s hoped the Olympic and Paralympic Games – the biggest sporting event on the planet – will present a perfect opportunity to promote their charm to a global audience.
