Identify flowers and scene on back of Suriname’s 1986 – 1988 notes


Today’s challenge is to identify the flowers and the scene which appears on the back of the Suriname’s banknotes from 1986 and 1988 (B516 – B521). The front of these notes features a portrait of Anton de Kom, a Surinamese resistance fighter and anti-colonialist author, so it may be that the crowd scene on the back is related, but I’ve been unable to locate any information to confirm this hunch.If you can precisely identify the flowers or scene—or have a lead which you think might be useful—please post a comment, preferably including a URL which links to evidence supporting your identification.

IDENTIFIED: Hibiscus, heliconia, and ginger flowers.
