The perfect accessory for anyone that wants to remember or anyone who simply loves the beautiful poppy flower.
Poppies have long been used as a symbol of sleep, peace, and death: Sleep because the opium extracted from them is a sedative, and death because of the common blood-red color of the red poppy in particular. ... Poppies used as emblems on tombstones symbolize eternal sleep.
The Remembrance Day symbolism of the poppy started with a poem written by a World War I brigade surgeon who was struck by the sight of the red flowers growing on a ravaged battlefield.
