Remembrance Day (originally called Armistice Day) was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth to commemorate the armistice agreement that ended the First World War. Every year we pause to remember those who have served and continue to serve. The poppy is a well-known symbol associated with Remembrance Day, due to the poem by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, “In Flanders Field”
