The reason poppies are worn is to remember those who have given their lives in battle because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War One ended. This is described in the famous World War One poem In Flanders Fields.

I'd be remiss if, as a military gal, I didn't know the importance or the significance of the red poppy. OH and our best friends are from the northern border where the tradition originated!

Yes, it is to commenorate the fallen soldier s in the second batle of Ypres who now lie in a field of poppies.

"In Flanders Field, the popplies blow, between the crosses, row on row." Writen by Dr. John McRae, He was serving in the same Canadian artillery unit when a friend of his was killed May 2, 1915. The Canadian military doctor and artillery commander Major John McCrae wrote this poem after his friend's burial.
