The Poppy - a symbol of remembrance
Each year in the run up to Armistice Day on 11th November, people wear poppies as a sign of remembrance, marking the anniversary of the First World War ending at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. At the end of the First World War the Flanders poppy, which grew on the battlefields, became a symbol of remembrance for those who gave their lives on those fields, most famously in the poem In Flanders Fields by poet John McCrae.
