Remembrance Day, also known as Poppy Day, is a day to remember and honour those who have served. The red poppy flowers have been adopted as the symbol for Remembrance Day. The poppy flower is a nod to the Flanders poppies that grow among some of the war victims graves.
Observed on November 11th, Remembrance Day “recalls the end of First World War hostilities. Hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918*”.
With our current world news is filled with conflicts and war, we take a moment to pause and reflect on all of those who are impacted. Everyone at Urban Impact extends our gratitude and thanks to our Canadian Armed Forces and their families, past and present.
