LEST WE FORGET  

THE STORY OF THE FLANDERS POPPY 

The seeds of the Flanders poppy had lay dormant on the front lines of France until 1915 when they were disturbed the soldiers fighting in World War 1. Coincidentally, the weather was the perfect conditions for them to germinate.  Every year for the next four, the poppies grew and their flowers lay like a red blanket across the fields on which the soldiers fought.  They also flowered in Turkey when the ANZAC’s landed at Gallipoli.

 

The flowers of the Flanders poppy are now a poignant reminder of the fallen soldiers on both Remembrance Day (11 November) and on Anzac Day (25 April) in Australia.
