It's red for a reason let's have it right, and it's about respect for those who laid down their lives, why change it, why. And yes I've got one with the swans crest on it, but guess what the poppy is red, as it should be. 👍


Did the fallen lay down their lives for you to wear a poppy with your football club on it? Proper disrespectful. For shame.

Ok, lets have it right then...

Are people only allowed to show their respect by wearing a red poppy?

The wearing of the poppy has been hijacked by all sorts of people and groups these days, same as most other things. All in aid of trying to show they respect remembrance day more than the next man. Take wearing the poppy on jerseys this weekend. Why? It's not remembrance day today, it's not even this weekend.

Why can't people just be happy knowing that they are showing respect themselves, without trying to point score or outdo the next person.

Every year its the same. Just waiting for the gnashing of teeth about a tv presenter not wearing one, or some facebook rumour that such and such a shop (obviously a pesky Muslim one), has refused to serve anyone wearing a poppy.

I want a mate like Flashberryjacks, who wears a Barnsley jersey with "Swans are my second team" on the back.

I'll tell you what the red poppy stands for. It stands for Remembrance for those fallen in past wars, and the hope for a peaceful future for all. It's highly symbolic, especially at this time of year, when we take time out to remember those who gave their lives sometimes unjustly. But now we have a rainbow poppy. Created by the look at me i'm gay brigade. LGBT people wish to be treated the same as everyone else, and rightfully so, but they also can't resist every opportunity to display the fact that they are 'different' from the rest of us.



A red poppy represents all who have fought and those who have fallen, regardless of sexuality or sexual preferences.


“LGBT people wish to be treated the same as everyone else, and rightfully so, but they also can't resist every opportunity to display the fact that they are 'different' from the rest of us. ”

The rainbow poppy isn’t designed to be worn by gay people ffs. It’s designed to recognise the contribution of those that fought in the wars, came back, and rather than being thanked and lauded were imprisoned or castrated due to their sexuality.

You say ‘regardless of sexual preference’ but that wasn’t the case was it when they went to war.

If you don’t like it, don’t wear it. Same as a white poppy. Or a black poppy. Or a purple poppy.

So putting a football club crest on the poppy is acceptable, yet changing the colour is not? It seems a rather arbitrary line in the sand.

I imagine most soldiers who gave their lives for this country would be bemused that people are getting wound up over something so trivial.

Don't be silly Lisa, i wasn't born yesterday.
There are far better ways to go about that situation as you should well know, lobbying parliament to issue an apology to those who had to endure such horrific experiences would hold far more weight than introducing a rainbow poppy.
This is totally about 'i am gay, look at my rainbow poppy'! Nothing else.

No, it’s not.

To be honest, I think I believe the person who started it rather than you when it comes to what it represents.

I wear a red poppy every year but last year I also bought a purple poppy for my dog. It’s not disrespectful in the slightest. I’m fed up of the whole ‘look at me with the ‘correct’ poppy’ from people that every year bring last year’s poppy out of the drawer to put it on without giving any money. If you don’t like it, don’t wear it. If people remember those that have fallen and been in conflicts and donate money they can wear whatever poppy they bloody want.

^^^guess who’s only got a little poppy


Spot on Neathie. It’s a time for remembrance; personally I think that’s best done through quiet reflection, rather getting one over the neighbours. Each to their own though. If people raise money for veterans, great. If people genuinely use the time to consider the futility of war, even better. But getting the hump because someone marks the occasion differently is plain daft and as shallow as feck.

November 1976 I was stood near the war memorial wearing my Great-Grandfather’s medals on my left breast as Mr Watkins the Passchendaele veteran next door winked at me as he marched past.

That’s the Poppy, that’s remembrance.

An idea isn't responsible for those who believe in it.

They didn’t produce poppies affixed to a Swans badge in a bygone era. But that’s fine. As it’s not what is important.

Respect is innate and sincere, not outward displays to show others you care.

Aww you bought a purple poppy for your dog, that's a wonderful story! The rest of course is your usual political correct leftist claptrap!
