Remembrance Sunday - Poppy flags
At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We remembered them.
Every year the nation unites to make sure that no-one is forgotten and to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
Remembrance honours those who serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life. Communities unite across faiths, cultures and backgrounds to remember the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth. We will remember them.
- We remember the sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth.
- We pay tribute to the special contribution of families and of the emergency services.
- We acknowledge innocent civilians who have lost their lives in conflict and acts of terrorism.
Remembrance does not glorify war and its symbol, the red poppy, is a sign of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
Wearing a poppy is is never compulsory but is greatly appreciated by those who it is intended to support.
When and how you choose to wear a poppy is a reflection of your individual experiences and personal memories.
