  A total of ten themed flower beds have been arranged for this Winter Olympics, the largest one is in Tiananmen Square with the theme of "Wonderful Winter Olympics", and there are nine themed flower beds along the other Chang'an Avenue and key areas. This is also the first time. Set up large themed flower beds in winter.

  [Explanation] The center of Tiananmen Square is equipped with a "wonderful Winter Olympics" theme flower bed, which is 17 meters high and 38.6 meters in diameter at the bottom.

The shape is based on the Chinese knot, combined with the Winter Olympics emblem and elements of ice and snow. The bottom is surrounded by five rings and embedded with snowflakes, conveying good wishes for the Beijing Winter Olympics.

  You can see that the central flower bed is a Chinese knot shape, 17 meters high, very festive Chinese knot shape.

As you can see above, we have combined the elements of the Winter Olympics and the elements of snowflakes. This also reflects how the Winter Olympics and the Spring Festival are combined with our Chinese culture.

  [Explanation] According to Lan Hailang, because it is the first time to place a large flower bed during the Spring Festival, and the flower bed is placed for a long time, it is necessary to overcome the problems of large temperature difference and strong wind in winter.

Lan Hailang said that after the completion of the flower bed in the center of Tiananmen Square, it can withstand strong winds of level 12.

  First of all, there are two difficulties to overcome. One is that the temperature is very cold. From January to March, from the Winter Olympics to the Winter Paralympics, the temperature difference between January and March is more than 30 degrees. Then how can we overcome the temperature difference?

At the same time, the wind in winter is very strong, so we must consider the wind protection of the flower bed in the design.

  [Explanation] At the same time, 4 themed flower beds are also arranged along Chang'an Street, with the themes of "Green Winter Olympics", "Happy Days", "Open Winter Olympics" and "Ice and Snow".

  [Explanation] The reporter saw at the scene that the concept of "green" permeates the whole process of flower bed design and production.

Many flower beds use garden wastes such as plant branches and fruits pruned in winter, which are "rejuvenated" in a second through the wonderful hands of florists.

  Because these branches in these winters are all dull in color, or gray, or this light green.

In order to make the flower bed show good color, we configured 23 color cards, selected 13 from them, and dyed all the branches.

After dyeing, the florist will weave accordingly according to some characteristics of these branches.

  [Explanation] It is understood that the layout of the Winter Olympics-themed flower beds is expected to be completed on January 20. At that time, ten large-scale Winter Olympic flower beds, including the airport special plane building, the Olympic Park, and Yanqing, will all be unveiled.
