During World War I, Red Flanders poppies (Papaver rhoeas) carpeted the fields during battles especially in Flanders. The little red flowers sprang up in bomb craters, around trenches and often marked soldiers’ graves. Today the red Flanders poppy remains a symbol of war and its heroes. Many remember their lost friends and family members by wearing a paper poppy pinned to their lapel on November 11th, Veterans Day.
