Due to the sleep-inducing properties of certain types of poppies, the poppy has been the symbol of everlasting sleep since ancient times. After the Second Battle of Ypres, the flower with her blood red leaves and black heart became a symbol for the fallen soldiers.

November 11th is Remembrance Day, also called Poppy Day. In the countries of the Commonwealth, it is the day to commemorate the end of World War I and all wars and armed conflicts since.
