The poppy flower adorned the battlefields of Flanders Field
serving as a living symbol of their fallen comrades' sacrifices.
In 1920 after WW I, the poppy became the official flower of
the American Legion Family to memorialize the soldiers who
fought and died during the war, and distribution of poppies
became a Legion national program in 1924. To this day,
thanks in large part to the American Legion Auxiliary, the
poppy is nationally recognized and worn as a symbol of
sacrifice made by the men and women who served and died
for their country during a time of war.
