TeeJay87Nice mountainy landscape, the presence of poppies reminds me song by Feliks Konarski about red poppies on Monte Cassino https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iab33qfDW-g

SaltwaterYes, I know that the Poppies symbol is very powerful, and will always have a special place in the heart of the Polish People.

TeeJay87Not only for us, those flowers are also representing casualties the United Kingdom suffered during the Great War; like this poem http://www.greatwar.co.uk/poems/john-mccrae-in-flanders-fields.htm is mentioning.

SaltwaterThis poem is known worldwide!  :)
In Britain, (and in the Commonwealth) there is a Poppy Day.
The red  poppy is the emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem "In Flanders Fields" (written by John McCrae).

TeeJay87I'm also familiar with a poem "The Flanders' Poppy" I couldn't find online - the poem itself is introduced in the book "The Great Battles of World War I" by Anthony Livesey and Major General Sir Jeremy Hackett on page 111.


According to the authors, red poppies flourished commonly after all the battles of WW1 in the Western Front, especially after the battle of Somme 1916.
