History EFE

The Entente Florale Europe competition was first launched in 1975. Since the first year, almost 700 cities, towns and villages have participated in the contest,  mobilizing  many communities,  thousands of volunteers, NGO’s, local citizens to cooperate  and prepare for the jury visit.

Originally the first entrant was always a bigger city or town, and the second entrant was a village.

Lately, according to the new regulations we also accept two entrants from the same size category.

In the table below you can find all communities that have participated previously. The gold, silver and bronze award was first introduced in 1996, before that contestants have received a “Europe prize”
