    No Flowers? What is in the bouquet on the medal stands?

    In the medalists bouquet are greens. I can't figure out what it is. Anyone know? thanks.

    I'm stumped. I looks like broccoli. Would it have been so bad for them just to hand out something pretty? Congratulations, you've just won the Olympic gold-here's some broccoli.

    Maybe it's because I am tired - but I found that comment hilarious!

    Go green!

    Broccoli, the winners can eat them, and then perform better.
    Flowers, just watch them until they die and then throw them away

    I know how you feel, I felt the same way in 2002. Maybe I'm reading more into your comment.'

    For some reason, I wondered about the flowers or lack of too. I wondered if they were just stalks with ribbon wrapped around them. One of the medalists looked at the bunch of whatever and looked like they went ..............ewwwwwwwwwwwww.

    I thought it looked like a green feather duster-you've won an Olympic medal, and that will qualify you for a job cleaning rooms at Motel 6. time to start the rest of your life.

    The Olympic organizers in vancouver surely could have done better, I think.

    "The predominately green bouquets contain eye-catching green hypericum berries, delicate green spider mums and broad leaf greens. The foliage consists of leatherleaf fern, loops of monkey grass and aspidistra leaves." (from an article in Canadian Florist)

    Here is the link from Canadian Florist: http://www.canadianfloristmag.com/content/view/2886/57/

    I think the intent was to present something indigenous to BC and Canada. I'm not 100% convinced about the aesthetics though.
