Remembrance day

Do you know why the sign of Remembrance Day is a poppy?

During the First World War (1914–1918) much of the fighting took place in Western Europe. The landscape swiftly turned to fields of mud, bleak and barren scenes where little or nothing could grow.

Bright red Flanders poppies however, were delicate but resilient flowers and grew in their thousands, flourishing even in the middle of chaos and destruction.

More details can be found in the British Legion website.
