This weekend will see the launch of the annual Creole Festival in the Seychelles, a group of 115 islands in the western Indian Ocean.
The festival is a celebration and manifestation of the island nation’s rich and diverse culture and heritage. It is the time where the uniqueness, customs and traditions of the Seychellois are relived.
In yesteryears, our elders, mostly ladies, used flowers as a form of communication – a way to pass on a secret little message. As part of the celebration, SNA takes a look at seven flowers and the messages they relayed.
