Wear a Poppy by StressedJenny Wear a Poppy by StressedJenny
I've never tried to do something like this before, but I really want to bring awareness to remembrance day. It's something that I find more and more affecting and I just wanted enable a way to remember on a wider scale. I've donated and wear a poppy on my coat, but if you could wear this poppy on your da page and donate where you can that would be so wonderful too.

Information on the poppy appeal can be found here: [link]

Could you please, please download this image and post it in your gallery with the link to the poppy appeal and wear this poppy on your page and remember those who sacrificed so much. Or even draw your own. Please pass the message on. Please don't link back to me either

I'd love to see as many poppies as I can on this site. It'd mean so much to so many people!! Please post. Thank you.

Lest we forget.

As an American, I never knew about this tradition in the UK, and it's nice to see such a nice way to honor the fallen. It really is a beautiful flower. May your troops be resting in peace. :)

That's a lovely idea. I've been out selling poppies today and Thursday with other volunteers from my university. It's always cold but you meet interesting people and raise a lot of money.

What does the poppy mean?

It's what people wear at the beginning of November and on Armistice/Remembrance day every year on the 11th of November (and the nearest Sunday, if it's not on a Sunday) and remember the soldiers who have died then and now and a two minute silence at 11 o'clock. The poppies come into it because they grew after WW1 ended, (on the 11th of November 1918) in the field where soldiers were buried, as well as the fields where they fought, because they commonly grew there. I believe the poppies symbolised the death of the many soldiers and the red linked in with the blood shed. Hope that helps.

Could you download it and then re-upload it to DA as a deviation? Then possibly put it as an ID pic. Or it'll just show up on 'newest deviations' :)

This is a really touching image. I think wearing a poppy in November is more important than ever now that the people who were there and fought for us and those who managed to survive the conflict are becoming fewer. I lost both my grandfathers over the last 2 years and they both worked for the war effort here in Britain and in New Zealand. Rememberence brings people closer together in honour of those who sacrificed so much for our freedom.

Honour the glorious dead.

ANZAC Day is the more recognised day of remembrance for servicemen/women in Aus, but I'll be wearing a poppy with pride nonetheless! Thank you for the lovely visual tribute.

I agree :) I'm posting up an 8 page comic that won a competition last year about WW1, one page each day up to Nov 11th . I think everyone has different reasons for wanting to take part in remembrance day, but everyone is affected by war in some way, so everyone can take part in that one minute silence.

Done and done. While I would rather link it to you, I'll respect that wish and pass along the same wish as you. I had no idea other countries had Poppies as well, but it certainly warms the heart to know so many honor their veterans and fallen like Canada does. And much respect for you. This is a wonderful thing you seek to do.

Lest We Forget.

Hi, I think this is a wonderful idea! I have done as you've requested and even made it my avatar, (hope you don't mind). I've read a few of the other comments and find it so interesting that so many other countries celebrate Remembrance Day, I had no idea if Remembrance Day was just a Canada thing or what. I knew of the U.S.'s Memorial Day and Veteran's Day, but of countries across the oceans, no clue. Both of my Grandfathers were in WWII, my Grandpa Ernie (Ernest) was a sniper, a mailman, and a cook and my Grandpa Engle (Edward) was a boy in occupied Holland. Mom told me that my Grandpa Edward would cut Nazi communication lines after they stole bread from him one day. Dad told me that Grandpa Ernie enlisted under the age of 18, he was actually 16 when he left. I don't know if there's a slogan for Remembrance Day in the U.K. but here it's 'Lest We Forget'. Again, great idea. :)

.....To you from failing hands we throw
the torch
be yours to hold it high
but if you break faith with us who die
we shall not rest
though poppies grow
in Flanders Fields.....

It is an honor to wear a poppy and remember those who gave all for our freedom.

....They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them....
