The Poppy……..the Flower of Remembrance

Each November, over 13 million poppies blossom in Canada.  Since 1921 they have blossomed on the jackets, dresses and hats of nearly half the Canadian population.  The poppy is the symbol that individuals use to show that they remember those who were killed in the wars and in peace keeping operations in which Canada has been involved.

Remembrance Day shall remain and be reverently observed with two minutes of silence on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of each year.
