Close-up of red poppy

The field poppy or corn poppy, properly known as Papaver rhoeas, is a common symbol of remembrance used by Commonwealth states on Remembrance Day, usually worn near the heart in the form of an artificial flower. Although seldom worn in the United States today, the tradition began in the US in 1920 as a result of campaigning by Moina Michael, who swore to wear a poppy in remembrance after being inspired by the poem "In Flanders Fields". The poem mentions the flourishing of poppies in the region of Flanders after World War I.
