Rosa Belgica

The Royal Belgian Rose Society “De Vrienden van de Roos / Les Amis de la Rose” (The Friends of the Rose) was founded in 1926 by Mr. Georges van Oost, a big lover and connaisseur of roses from Ghent. With this initiative, he realised his wish to spread the enthusiasm for roses and the culture for rose cultivation, to develop and promote everything which might contribute to  a better knowledge of that which is known as the queen of flowers.

In 1968, the society worked actively on the foundation of the World Federation of Rose Societies, of which it is a founding member. Also owing to this, the society keeps cordial relationships with national rose societies all over the world.
