Macao Lotus Flower Festival

English: Macao Lotus Flower Festival, Portuguese: Festival da Flor de Lótus de Macau, Traditional: 澳門荷花節, Simplified: 澳门荷花节

The Macao Lotus Flower Festival is a unique event showcasing stunning aquatic flowers with deep cultural and religious symbolism in the East – especially in China.

For the Chinese, the lotus flower symbolises purity in both mind and heart since it rises from the mud.

There are several lotus flower species; each year, one species is highlighted during the festival. Check out the Lou Lim Ieoc Garden, Taipa Houses Museum, and other destinations around town with unique displays of these flowers. There will also be numerous potted lotus flower displays in popular parks and landmarks around Macau. However, if you want the most extensive collection of lotus flowers here, visit the ecological pond north of Avenida da Praia in Taipa.

The Macao Lotus Flower Festival is also a great chance to get creative and try some lotus-themed dishes that restaurants will offer. One of the biggest highlights will be in the Golden Lotus Square, a famous tourist spot known for its majestic bronze sculpture entitled Lotus Flower in Full Bloom. The 6-meter-high sculpture symbolises Macau’s prosperity; it was designed and made of 23 red granite pieces constructed carefully in three layers.

This sculpture’s lotus leaves also represent Macao’s three main geographical zones: the Macau Peninsula, Coloane Island, and Taipa Island. Throughout the year, lotus flowers can also be found around the country. It’s no wonder why it has been given the nickname “City of the Lotus Flower”, and it’s also the national flower of Macau.  The festival takes place every summer, so include it in your Macau itinerary.

The Macao Lotus Flower Festival is a beautiful time to celebrate the significance of the lotus flower to the Chinese.
