Can you explain what this British Legion is, and why it has widespread appeal in the commonwealth? Most people in the U.S. know when Veterans Day is (stores use it as an excuse to throw sales), but I think few would associate the poppy with it. Which is unfortunate, because it is such a moving and meaningful symbol, once you know what it means.
Absolutely. The corn poppy is a very elegant flower. It would be nice for it to represent the honor and sacrifices of the Allied forces, and still be a symbol of classic style.
