The annual Macao Lotus Flower Festival celebrates this unique aquatic plant found throughout China. Each year, the festival highlights a particular lotus flower species. They can be appreciated at the Taipa Houses and in the Lou Lim Ieoc Garden. As part of the festival, potted lotuses can also be found in major parks, on many streets and in popular sightseeing spots around the city, as a reminder of the role the lotus plays in the design of the Macao SAR flag.
