Poppy Lapel Pin
This lapel pin bears a poppy flower with a vintage spring-loaded clutch back. This piece was designed by a military spouse at Hope Design Ltd.Ⓡ.
Poppies are a unique flower. Their seeds need light to grow, so they can remain dormant underground for many years without blooming. Once the soil is disturbed the seeds come to the light and bloom. During World War I, the ground across Europe was greatly disturbed and poppies began to bloom in the midst of the destruction. The red poppy became a symbol of remembrance for those who fought and served in World War I.
Lapel pin measurements - poppy: 5/8 x 5/8 x 3/4"
