There is a vast difference from showing you are a Swansea City fan displaying a red poppy to show respect, other than displaying a rainbow poppy to let everyone know you are gay. A red poppy with LGBT in the middle? No problem for me. Hope this helps.


Does wearing a purple poppy make you a horse?

As has been explained, it isn’t designed to show the person wearing it is gay. You obviously know better than the person who designed it though.

People died for us to have a choice to wear a poppy or not but if you’re going to wear one it should always be red,there’s a reason they are a red and there aren’t any rainbow coloured ones in Flanders Fields you fuçking morons.


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

I don't think I've ever worn a poppy and have ever felt the need to. I've got a huge amount of respect for those that laid down their lives in wars past but I've never felt the need to brandish that outwardly by wearing a poppy and while happy to contribute towards the British Legion, I'm ashamed that it's needed while vast swathes of cash are wasted by government on nonsense.

In fact, the politicisation of the whole memorial sickens me.

Everyone knows why it’s red.

That’s not the point.

The actual ones in Flanders fields aren’t trademarked either.

Should always be red. People need to stop hijacking it for other needs.

The whole thing was hijacked mun. The wearing of the poppy started as an American and then French thing and the British Legion now own it as a trademark.

A different colour poppy isn’t stopping people purchasing or wearing the red poppy.

There should be no other colour for Remembrance Day,no other colour at all.
Now you have the last word quite simply because you know I’m 100% correct and that you’re just acting like an insolent pigtailed 14 year old girl.

I won’t be replying.

Of course you won’t reply - you have no actual argument and are simply trolling. As you always do.

Better spend your time instead trawling the Internet for other reasons to start up the outrage bus and wind up the usual suspects.

I’m not sure that’s right, Lis, and I’m reasonably clued-up. So far as I’m aware the French flower of remembrance was and is a Blueut, a Cornflower.

On a slight tangent I had a chat with a fella who was selling poppies in Aldi. He was a colourful guy who said they should bring back national service, ban drugs but legalise prostitution

You’ve met Lohengrin then.

I’ve read accounts tracing mentions further back than that, to Fontenoy in 1745 of local girls pinning poppies to the tunics of British troops moving up to the line for luck.

Regardless, the modern story really began in 1921 with the first appeal for the Haig Fund.

It helps to show that you have a warped view on things.

So you'd be happy with a red poppy with a swastika in the middle would you? Because it's still red after all. Of course you wouldn't be. Because it's preposterous. As is your stance on this whole subject.

Showing 'respect' for our soldiers while pushing an agenda against a section of society. Weird.

You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help.

The RBL's paper poppies are environmentally friendly and all of the parts are either biodegradable or recyclable.
The petals and leaf are made of paper and the stem and centre of recyclable plastic.
