Do you know how important Tulips were for the 18th Century Ottomans? You can read about the Tulip Era HERE, and about Istanbul’s Blue Mosque (with more than 20,000 handmade ceramic tiles, featuring fifty different tulip designs) HERE. Also, take a look at these modern logos to see how the Tulips’s importance lives on in Turkey:
