Story of the Remembrance Day Poppy:

The remembrance poppy is an artificial flower that has been used since 1921 to commemorate military personnel who have died in the war and represent a common or field poppy. Inspired by the World War I poem “In Flanders Fields”, and promoted by Moina Michael, they were first adopted by the American Legion to commemorate American soldiers killed in that war (1914–1918).

They were then adopted by military veterans’ groups in parts of the British Empire: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Today, they are most common in the UK and Canada and are used to commemorate their servicemen and women killed in all conflicts since 1914. There, small artificial poppies are often worn on clothing leading up to Remembrance Day/Armistice Day (11 November). Poppy wreaths are also often laid at war memorials.
