With its beauty and natural peace, it is no exaggeration if S.M Cabot named the island in the Sunda Kecil Island cluster alongside Bali and NTB under the name Flores. Flores where in Portuguese Flores means “flower”. This island is like a flower that does not need cosmetics to look beautiful.

In addition to the stunning landscape of natural beauty of the soul, Flores has established himself as one of the important parts of the republic’s founding journey.  Precisely in Ende City for approximately 4 years (January 14, 1934 – October 18, 1938) Sukarno was exiled by the Dutch Hinda Government.

During the process of exile in the largest city in Flores Island, It is said that Sukarno gained inspiration about Pancasila starting from his reflection under the Sukun Tree. So no doubt, Ende city became known as the city of the birth of Pancasila.
