The red poppy has an important meaning; it is a symbol in memory for soldiers killed in action. Thus the Remembrance Day for war victims is also called Poppy Day. The use of the poppy was inspired by the World War I poem "In Flanders Fields". Its opening lines refer to the many poppies that were the first flowers to grow in the churned-up earth of soldiers' graves in Flanders, a region of Europe that overlies parts of Belgium and France. Comes in original capsule in a beautiful wood box and with a certificate of authenticity.
