The Belgian Royal and National Rose Society "Les Amis de la Rose"- De Vrienden van de Roos" was founded in 1926 by a great amateur and connoisseur of roses, Mr. Georges van Oost. He concretized by this inititative his desire to spread the love and the culture of the roses, to develop and to encourage all what could contribute to a better knowledge of which is called the "Queen of the Flowers". In 1968, the Belgian Royal National Rose Society was an active member for the founding of WFRS and since then has a cordial relationship with all national rose societies around the world.
