The Remembrance Day Poppy Origin

The Remembrance Poppy is an artificial flower sold by veteran's associations to raise money for servicemen and servicewomen.

The modern Remembrance Poppy has been trademarked by veteran's associations in many jurisdictions, particularly in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth nations, where sales fund the associations' services. Small remembrance poppies are often worn on clothing leading up to Remembrance Day/Armistice Day, and poppy wreaths are often laid at war memorials. In Australia and New Zealand, they are also worn on Anzac Day.

Promoted by women like Madame Guérin and Moina Michael, Remembrance poppies are mostly used in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, all of which are realms of the Commonwealth of Nations—to commemorate the servicemen and women killed in conflict. They are used to a lesser extent in the United States.

You can learn much more about these enduring symbols and the brave service people and conflicts they represent by visiting this Wikipedia page and reading more about Armistice Day and Anzac Day.
