14 July 2017

Compulsory places for Pyongyang residents to visit during Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il’s birthdays are the Kimilsungia and Kimjongilia flower exhibitions. Kimilsungia is a species of orchid named after North Korea’s founder. Kimjongilia is a hybrid of begonia created by a Japanese botanist who was fond of North Korea. Major ministries and plants cultivate these flowers, and the best ones are sent to the exhibition. On the Day of the Star and the Day of the Sun, tens of thousands of Pyongyang residents pass through these displays.
