Melbourne Cup Carnival Race Day Flowers

Each major race day over the Melbourne Cup Carnival has a dedicated flower. Men will often wear designated flower in their buttonhole, and coordinate the respective color with their shirt or tie. Women may also choose to incorporate the flower into their outfit, whether it be inspiration from the color, wearing as a corsage or a hair accessory.
