The remembrance of poppy was inspired by the WWI poem "In Flanders Fields. Its opening lines refer to the many poppies that were the first flowers to grow in the churned-up earth of soldiers graves in Flanders, a region of Europe that overlies part of Belgium. We distribute the red poppy as a lasting memorial symbol to the fallen.
