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.


I can’t believe you actually took time to type that.

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


Just looked at the British Legion site and all the poppies I saw there were red. However, there is nothing stopping people having a red poppy with the symbol they are most proud of attached. Like the poppy and the Swans badge.

These are some ideas I had...

I juts drove past Tonia Antoniazzi’s constituency office in Gorseinon. She has three giant poppies (red, obvs) on display on the outside of the building.

That’s proper respect for The Fallen right there.

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.


It was started by Madame Guérin. First used in America, France, Canada and it was she, later, who introduced the idea to the British Legion in 1921. In fact, she paid for the poppies and was reimbursed from the 1st British poppy drive.

I’ve just looked to see if there’s anything in wiki, and there’s a summary:

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.


Read the article I’ve just posted. It tells you the history.

It was introduced to the British Legion by Madame Guérin and had been previously in use elsewhere.

That one has been around for a while. The one that’s ok I mean.

A cursory look at the British Legion examples demonstrates that anything is ok as long as it raises money. The reason they attach a red poppy to everything is because they trademarked it in 2000.

Good job on this thread though. When nothing else is working, a poppy thread is a guaranteed catch. Including me on this occasion.

I’d mentioned it starting in the States previously. Lohengrin was questioning the involvement of the French which is why I posted that.

The wider article on there (wiki) about the use of the poppy mentions both - I’ve just checked.

If the gay poppies want to shag other poppies of their own gender then they should be free to do so without persecution, discrimination or prejudice. Gay poppies should have the same rights as straight poppies including the ability to choose a gender from the selection of 17000 currently available, marry the poppies they love and have little poppies of their own.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
