The red poppy has become symbolic of Remembrance Day, celebrated on November 11. Wearing the poppy is a sign of respect and a way of saying that our soldiers' memories and legacy will not be forgotten.
At plantyourpoppy.org there is a virtual garden waiting to be planted full of poppies. It's the perfect way to get involved in Remembrance Day if you can't attend a service.
Part of the Victorian RSL's Poppy Appeal, the interactive website let's you plant your virtual poppy in the garden, and leave your name and a message or share a story about what Remembrance Day means to you. Or you can simply write Lest We Forget. There is also the option to add a personal photo, maybe of a loved one who served for Australia. Or you can plant a poppy anonymously too.
Already, the garden is growing with hundreds of people planting their poppies and adding their personal messages. You can read others' messages and stories by clicking on a poppy.
