Please forgive my ignorance. I would fully expect you to shake your head in astonishment that a person could be so completely uninformed but what is the significance of the red flowers?

Respectfully,

Don

Don, this may help: The poppy’s significance to today’s observance is a result of Canadian military physician John McCrae’s poem In Flanders Fields. The poppy emblem was chosen because of the poppies that bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I. And their red color seemed an appropriate symbol for the bloodshed of trench warfare.

Joining you Hermione in thanking and honoring our veterans. (((hugs)))

We honour and remember all the casualties of war, both military and civilian. The red poppy symbol has been adopted world wide as the symbol of this remembrance and is worn with pride by all who seek to reaffirm their honouring of the fallen. Lest we forget.

I so agree with those above...Freedom is definitely not free. Thank you to all who have served and their families for their sacrifices!

Hugs and blessings...Cat

I appreciate all who served bravely and honorably and feel especially sad for those who died for someone else's greed rather than freedom.
