Perhaps the best-known export product of The Netherlands is the
Tulip. Nevertheless, this flower (and bulb) comes originally not
from the Netherlands but, surprisingly, from Turkey (the Ottoman
Empire). The Latin name for Tulip is Tulipa, which means translated
the flower that looks like a turban”. In the 16th century, the
tulip became a popular flower at the Turkish empire of Suleyman the
Great. At that time the men used to wear a turban in Turkey.
