“Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red”

“The red poppy is a symbol of remembrance for a reason: In Western Europe, it is the first wildflower to appear when soil is churned up. So after a war, fields where soldiers fell become vast expanses of crimson blooms.”

This summer at the Tower of London, 888,246 ceramic red poppies are being planted, in honor of Britons who lost their lives 100 years ago during World War I.
