    A search got me this…

    The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944
    of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II.
    The poppy is a late Spring flower… now I got it, thanks Terry!

    Flanders is a reference to World War 1. The poppy was among the first, and was the most distinctive, plant to grow back on the battlefields, and inspired a poem (In Flanders Fields). The poppy became the symbol of remembrance of the huge loss of life during that war, first adopted by the US but subsequently in a number of other countries including France and the UK. Now that unfortunately more wars/conflicts, call them what you will, have passed the poppy has become symbolic of loss of life in all wars, and of the fundraising for those affected by conflict.
    Sadly no-one ever learns the lessons of history................
