Its a poppy to honor our Veterans on Nov 11.
It came from a poem about the battle of Flanders during WWI.

First Armistice at Compiègne

The fighting officially ended at 11:00 a.m. The eleventh hour of The eleventh day of The eleventh month.


But since it is an English based site...its poppy red!

Let's not forget that in most of the world outside US in general and Europe and British Commonwealth in particular it's called the Remembrance Day "to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty".

The difference is quite significant, the US Veterans Day being dedicated to all veterans who have served in US armed forces whereas the Remembrance Day is to commemorate those who lost their lives in the line of duty.
