    Background: EUROPE IN FLOWERS - THAT WAS THE THEME OF THE 1962 SPRING FLOWER PARADE HELD AT SAN REMO, ITALY, JANUARY 28. HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF BLOOMS WERE PUT IN PLACE IN ONLY ONE NIGHT FOR THE BIG OCCASION.

    THE PARADE WAS HELD THREE WEEKS EARLIER THAN LAST YEAR; BUT THE DAY WAS SUNNY AND MANY PEOPLE TURNED OUT TO ADMIRE THE FLOATS. TWELVE EUROPEAN NATIONS PARTICIPATED - BELGIUM, DENMARK, FRANCE, HOLLAND, HUNGARY, ITALY, NORWAY, SPAIN, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND, THE UK., AND WEST GERMANY.

    IT WAS AGAIN A SPECTACULAR EVENT. AMONG THE MULTITUDE OF FLOWERS WERE THE BEAUTY QUEENS, THE BANDS AND THE FOLK DANCERS. A PARTICULARLY STRIKING FLOAT WAS THE NORWEGIAN ONE: IT TOOK THE SHAPE OF A VIKING BOAT.

    AND AT THE END OF THE PARADE, THE TRADITIONAL "FLOWER BATTLE" BEGAN AMONG THE SPECTATORS. THE BLOOMS WERE EAGERLY SEIZED AS FLORAL SOUVENIRS OF A COLOURFUL DAY.
