The organizing committee for the Tokyo Games on Tuesday unveiled the designs of the bouquets that will be presented to medalists and revealed they will be created with flowers grown in the areas of northeastern Japan heavily hit by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The bouquets will feature flowers such as eustoma grown in Fukushima Prefecture and gentian from Iwate Prefecture in a bid to showcase the region’s recovery from the earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear disaster, according to the organizers.
