Remembrance Day - the day of poppies. For millions of Canadians the poppy has long been the flower of Remembrance. It originally was a reminder of the blood-red flower which grew in the fields where many Canadians died in a place called Flanders. It remains the flower of Remembrance. Remembrance Day is observed on November 11th and it is a statutory holiday throughout Canada. Songs are written for Remembrance Day like Well known "In Flanders Fieldsj" by John McCrae (Guelph, Canada). We will Remember Them.
Rememberance Day is celebrated in Australia as well with great pride.
