In honour of Remembrance Day this month, you can now find this lovely Poppy Shower Curtain on our website. All proceeds from sales of the poppy shower curtain will go to The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
The red poppy has been used to commemorate fallen soldiers of war since 1921. It is used as a symbol as it grows wild in fields in northern France and Belgium, where many soldiers died in World War I. The idea of using the poppy was inspired by the World War I poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.
Red is not the only colour of poppy that can be worn in remembrance. White poppies are a symbol of remembrance of fallen soldiers, but also of pacifism and objection to further war. Purple poppies are worn to remember the animals who have also served in war.
