AMC Poppies

As this coming Sunday, 11th November, will be the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, we think of poppies...

THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION RED POPPY

  • A Symbol of Remembrance and Hope, to commemorate the people who sacrificed their lives in the First World War, and conflicts following that war
  • Red — the natural colour of field poppies

    A WHITE POPPY FOR PEACE

  • To remember ALL Victims of War (today, over 90% of people killed in warfare are civilians)
  • To Challenge Militarism
  • To Build a Culture of Peace

    THE BLACK POPPY ROSE

  • A Symbol of Remembrance for the contribution made by 'black' communities from all over the world, for various wars since the 16th century

    THE PURPLE POPPY (and Purple Paw Badge)

  • To commemorate the animal victims of war
  • They do not give their lives — they are taken
  • During human conflicts, animals have been used as messengers, for detection, scouting and rescue, as beasts of burden and on the front line.
