All Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft under KLM colors have been christened with flower names or flowering plants such as Orchids, Sunflower, Carnation, Lavender and Daisy. The fact that the 13 Dreamliner was named "Tulip" is no coincidence. The Netherlands is renowned for the export of tulips and tulips bulbs.
