About Pintaflores Festival

In the beautiful city of San Carlos, in Negros Occidental, Pintaflores festival is celebrated every year on every 5th November. The festival’s name is remarkable, one that provokes the interest of many a voyager. This name is a derivation of the Spanish word 'pinta' which freely means tattoos, and 'flores' which implies flowers. This festival, fundamentally, is about a combination of expressions and nature, making for a very interesting theme.

The storyline behind Pintaflores revolves around the adversity and victory of a princess who took the test to go to unexplored terrains. Legend has it that Princess Nabingka who hailed from Cebu City, took the voyage from the city to a nearby island close by individuals from her regal crew. The region was named after the princess, and is today known as San Carlos City. After the princess settled on the island, she experienced an infection that necessitated quick action.

Local people took to planting bloom beds in the conviction this would recuperate the princess, yet the climate had different plans and the blossoms did not bloom. This prompted the utilization of flower tattoos for the princess' recuperating, a custom that remains stands strong today. Visitors attending to the Pintaflores Festival should pay special mind to the multifaceted botanical tattoos of the artists as they advance down the streets. Such an amazing festival not just gives a look into the rich social legacy within the city, it is also a prominent tourist attraction.
