Holiday within commonwealth countries in commemoration of soldier whom fought and died during WW1,WW2 and other was sonce then . Thee poppy has been it's symbol since WW1.

In Canada, The Remembrance Day is commonly associated with the poem In Flanders Fields. Wrotten by Lieutenant John McRae while fighting in the Western Front during WW1.

Poem is as followed:

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
"Praise Allah."
