The poppy has long symbolized death in a military context. It's a way to remember those who gave their all for our tomorrow. But another historical meaning for it is peace. Peace also fits into the puzzle. There's an eternal peace to those who fell. It also covers the peace they provided those who remain in this world. The symbolism of the poppy goes hand-in-hand with our national colors, as well. We wave the flag remembering all those who died protecting everything it represents. What so proudly we hail in our colors and those who gave their all in our nation's defense.
