Poppy Flower Remembrance Tie

The red poppy is an internationally recognized symbol of remembrance to commemorate those soldiers who have died in war serving their country. In 1915, Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae wrote the World War I poem In Flanders Fields, which referred to the brilliant red poppies that bloomed in the aftermath of the war torn battlefields of Flanders. Inspired by McCrae's poem, Ms. Moina Michael published a response called We Shall Keep the Faith, in which she vowed to always wear a red poppy as a symbol of remembrance. Her continued efforts resulted in the adoption of the red poppy by the American Legion as the national symbol of sacrifice honoring the casualties of war. Additionally, the symbol of the poppy flower was adopted by military veterans' groups in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

This necktie design combines the traditional and contemporary poppy flowers set against war time explosions of the night's blue sky. Wearing the Poppy Flower Remembrance Scarf is your personal tribute to continue to honor all soldiers who have served and given their lives for freedom. 100% silk.
