The Poppy is a significant symbol that signals respect and acknowledgement. The symbol of remembrance became offical in the year 1920. A French women by the name of Moina Michaels conceived the idea of Poppy day. She was so touched by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae's poem 'In Flanders fields' her response was "We shall keep the faith". These beautiful Poppies get worn on Anzac day to remember and commemorate those who fought for us.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news
