The logo of the tercentenary is based on a picture that was painted by the leading botanical artist of his day, Georg Dilnys Ehret. The painting illustrates Class 10 of the sexual system.

Linnæus Tricentenary Celebrations in Råshult and Uppsala

Sweden

Two national days of festivities are approaching, commemorating the tercentenary of the birth of Carl Linnaeus (known in his native Sweden as Carl von Linné). Thousands of guests from near and far are expected to visit Linnnaeus´s birthplace at Råshult, and Uppsala, where he lived and worked for fifty years. Scientists, Linnaeus devotees and flower children alike will be able to celebrate together with members of the Swedish royal family and the Japanese Emperor and Empress.
