WHY THE NETHERLANDS?

The Netherlands is one of the most tolerant and liberal countries in the world, famous for (its) Canals - Diamonds - Double Dutch - House of Orange - Windmills – Wooden Shoes - Anthony Fokker - Anne Frank – Vincent van Gogh – Mata Hari - Rembrandt van Rijn - DAF - Heineken - KLM - Philips – Shell – Unilever – Karel Appel - Johann Cruijf – Femke Janssen – Jeroen Krabbé - Richard Krajicek - Ari Luijendijk – Paul Verhoeven and so much more.

But who says The Netherlands, says Dutch, and ... says FLOWERS. The Netherlands have the worlds largest Flower Auction House and from all corners of our planet daily flowers and plants arrive in Aalsmeer and Rijnsburg to find their way coloring life in Hong Kong, London, Madrid, Moskow, New York, Paris, Rio, Rome, Tokyo and of course Amsterdam.


WHY A TULIP AWARD?

We are confronted with so much extreme fear on a daily basis that we almost forgot to notice the many good things and it is time we start spending more attention to it, especially the global media. The Internet is an ideal environment to start. The time has come for a dramatic change of certain attitudes in our society. Time to reject the detour towards fear so we can safely open our doors for the better. Time to look out for friends through understanding and mutual respect amongst people all over the world. This can NOT be achieved with aggression from whomever against whomever. That is why we must spend more time to encourage and support positive attitudes and award its ambassadors as example for a better future.

The Dutch say “Say it with Flowers!” and “Flowers love people so take them home!” and be frank, who doesn't like them? Flowers are associated with the positive and the Tulip is the National Symbol of The Netherlands. For that reason the Steering Committee of THE NICEST PERSON ON EARTH poll choose the TULIP as Award for its annual Internet election.


Quote Deputy Minister Economic Affairs: "Give the Tulip also content"

"The Tulip as symbol for The Netherlands is good for its reputation abroad but the trademark urgently requires content”. That is what Staatssecretaris Karien van Gennip, the Dutch deputy minister of Economic Affairs, said during a closed session about Branding at the Clingendael Institute in Den Hague on 17 November 2004.


TELEVISION SHOW

The Steering Committee would like to grant the most popular nominees with Golden, Silver and Bronze TULIPS to be handed out by famous Dutch dignitaries and celebrities during a special television show in The Netherlands. Proceeds of the show are donated to African Relief Projects. The event will be on invitation only and if you leave a comment after voting, maybe you will be one of the lucky special guests on the show.
