History Papilionanda Gelora Bandung .... is a semi-terete Vanda alliance hybrid bred by an Indonesian orchid grower perhaps better known by his stage/screen name as the actor Ayub S. Parnata.
The term 'Gelora Bandung' today refers to the modern sports stadium in Bandung, West Java, which did not exist in the 1960s. While 'Gelora' in Bahasa abbreviates 'Gelanggang Olahraga' (Sports Arena), it also means inextinguishable (like the Olympic flame) or indomitable (like the human spirit). It could apply to Bandoeng of old, once a major centre of orchid production in maritime Southeast Asia. The originator's inextinguishable passion for orchids was consolidated by a taught course on orchid cultivation at Bandung in the late 1950s. He later named his daughter Intan, meaning diamond (Greek 'adamas'): adamant, unconquerable, invincible, indomitable, like the spirit of Bandung. [Emrys Chew Ph. D.]
