Single early tulip ' Prince Carnival' aka 'Prins Carnaval' is introduced in 1930. It is a mutant from the historical single early tulip 'Prince of Austria' aka 'Prins van Oostenrijk'.
In the Netherlands 'Carnival' is called 'Carnaval' and is celibrated exactly 40 days (not counting Sundays) before Easter in our southern provinces Noord Brabant and Limburg. I live in Limburg where the festival of Carnival begins on sunday and ends tuesday night before the first church mass on Ash Wednesday. Well..our Carnival traditions include, next to parades, very colourfull costumes and so on.., a fake prince plus cortge ('Council of 11'). Tulip 'Prince Carnival' is named after the fake prince who 'rules' the city during Carnival.
Red, yellow and green are the traditional colors of Carnival in our province Limburg. So the flag of the Prince Carnival is a horizontal tricolor of red, yellow, and green.
