In Australia and other countries of the Commonwealth, we recognise the red poppy as the commemorative flower of remembrance. The flower reminds us of those who lost their lives or suffered in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. It's a tradition that began in the early 1900s, after World War I.  During World War I, red poppies were among the first plants to grow on the Western front in Europe. They bloomed across the wasted battlefields of northern France and Belgium.  In 1918, American academic and teacher Moina Michael was inspired to write a poem after reading McCrae's In Flanders Fields. Michael's poem is called We Shall Keep the Faith. She is known as the first person to wear a red poppy as a personal commemoration. She also encouraged the sale of poppies to raise money for veterans. This gave rise to the poppy becoming a symbol of remembrance around the world.

Whether you wish to have a poppy in remembrance or you just love beautiful flowers, this lovely red poppy will bring you joy.  As with all magnets this poppy can be mounted on any steel surface (fridge etc).
