Poppy Flower

The Poppy Flower is the enduring symbol of remembrance of the First World War. It’s explosively linked with Armistice Day( 11 November), but the poppy’s origin as a popular symbol of remembrance lies in the geographies of the First World War.

Poppies were a common sight, especially on the Western Front. They flourished in the soil churned up by the fighting and shelling. The flower handed Canadian croaker
John McCrae with alleviation for his lyric’ In Flanders Fields’, which he wrote whilst serving in Ypres in 1915. It was first published in Punch, having been rejected by The Spectator. In 1918, in response to McCrae’s lyric, American philanthropic Moina Michael wrote’ And poppy flower the Torch and Poppy Red, we wear in honor of our dead’. She campaigned to make the poppy a symbol of remembrance of those who had failed in the war.
Artificial poppies were first vended in Britain in 1921 to raise plutocrat for the Earl Haig Fund in support offer-servicemen and the families of those who had failed in the conflict. They were supplied by Anna Guerin, who had been manufacturing the flowers in poppy flower to raise plutocrat for war orphans. Dealing poppies proved so popular that in 1922 the British Legion innovated a plant- staffed by impaired-servicemen to produce its own. It continues to do so moment.

Other charities vend poppies in different colors, each with their own meaning but all to commemorate the losses of war. White poppies, for illustration, symbolize peace without violence and grandiloquent poppies are worn to recognize creatures killed in conflict.
The poppy continues to be vended worldwide to raise plutocrat and to flash back those who lost their lives in the First World War and in posterior conflicts.
