The memorial that was developed out of the Armistice Day continued to be marked on the same day. The first Armistice Day was practiced at the Buckingham Palace that began with King George V hosting a Banquet in the Honor of the President of the French Republic on 10th of November 1919. The initial authorized Armistice Day was consequently held on the land of the Buckingham Palace the next morning. The red remembrance poppy has now turned into a recognizable emblem of Remembrance Day owing to the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ that was written by John McCrae, a Canadian Physician.

The poem was all about the wreckage he witnessed in the area of Flanders in Belgium and in the northern parts of France at the time of the First World War. The land lay was shattered by the dreadful wars, and many men of the armed forces that died during the battle were buried there. But in spite of the destruction of the battle, the wild poppies that existed there survived. The poem written by Dr. McCrae was published in the Punch journal, and the red poppy developed into the symbol of Remembrance Day.
Additionally, the 2nd Sunday of every November is called the Remembrance Sunday, and the church services keep in mind the deceased soldiers at the same time as the Queen, the members of the Imperial Family, the Politicians and the old soldiers place poppy garlands at the Cenotaph in the city of London close to the Houses of Parliament. As the Remembrance Day and the Remembrance Sunday comes close we purchase little poppies that are made out of paper to demonstrate that we are still recalling the sacrifices of all the soldiers who died and moreover to raise fund to sustain ex-service and serving personnel and their families. The people who have lost a loved one at the time of service put little wooden crosses in close proximity to the war memorials around the nation, and home branches of the Royal British Legion place wreath.
In the year 1938, an official holiday was observed in the United States of America on the 11th of November, which was devoted to the grounds of World Peace and to be in future commemorated and known to be ‘Armistice Day’. The name of this holiday was altered to Veterans Day in 1954, and it became a day to provide a tribute to the US veterans of all the battles. In Canada, the Remembrance Day has proved to be an elastic and permanent term. It has matured to embrace the memory of the war dead from the wars namely the Second World War, the War in Afghanistan, the Korean War as well as from the negotiation missions and numerous other international military activities. All in all, in excess of 1.6-million Canadians, have served in Canada’s Armed Forces and above 118,000 have given their lives in all those foreign conflicts.
