How do you say "Circle of Flowers" in French?
Subject: Re: translation to French
Answered By: pinkfreud-ga on 24 Jul 2006 16:57 PDT
"Circle of Flowers" is "Cercle des Fleurs" in French.

If you wanted to say "A Circle of Flowers," that would be "Un Cercle des Fleurs." 

"The Circle of Flowers" would be "Le Cercle des Fleurs."

Another way to say this is "[La or Une] Ronde des Fleurs," but "ronde"
has many other meanings that might cause confusion.

My search strategy: Personal knowledge of the French language.

I hope this is precisely what you need!

Best regards,

I agree with the comment by vincent123-ga (below). "De" is indeed a
better choice than "des." "Cercle de fleurs" receives 92 hits in a
simple Google search, whereas "cercle des fleurs" receives only 15.

Yet another possibility is "[Le or Un] Anneau de Fleurs," which means
"ring of flowers." Or, if the reference is to a garland such as a
Hawaiian lei, "[Le or Un] Collier de Fleurs."

Actually 'un cercle des fleurs' doesn't make any sense in French (to
my native speaker ears). The correct translation for 'a circle of
flowers' would be 'un cercle de fleurs'. But really i wouldn't want to
argue too much about that because it doesn't seem like such a critical
point anyway.

(native speaker) don't forget you ought not to put uppercase
characters in words in french, even in titles....

"A Circle of Flowers"
"Un cercle de fleurs"
