Today across the United Kingdom, Remembrance is being held. It is always the Sunday nearest to the 11th November, which is known as Armistice Day. Armistice Day is the anniversary of the end of the hostilities of the First World War at 11 a.m. in 1918.
Remembrance Sunday is a day to remember all the people that have served, been killed or injured in Wars. Ceremonies take place in cities at local war memorials, where wreaths made of poppies are laid, along with a two minute silence.
The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem on Remembrance Sunday, as it is used to remember soldiers who have died during wartime. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red colour an appropriate symbol for the blood spilled in the war.
