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.
