100 years of the #PoppyAppeal – a history of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance – an annotated infographic

The day after Remembrance Sunday; the day before the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. We are proud today to share this infographic about the Poppy symbol.

A century since the Great War, the poppy lives on as a potent symbol of remembrance in Britain, Canada and other countries around the world to honour those servicemen and women killed in conflict since 1914.

We will remember them.
