In the UK we celebrate both Armistice Day (11th November) and Remembrance Sunday (the closest Sunday to 11th). If the 11th falls on a Sunday then it’s obviously both on the same day.
These days of remembrance are important for many people. We remember those who died as a result of serving in our armed forces (in any capacity) in current day conflicts and wars gone by.
The Royal British Legion is the main charity that raises funds to support ex-service people and their families.
Why I created the Poppy Papercut Art?
The short answer is, as a special edition for Armistice/Remembrance Day.
Here is some details about the poppy, “The poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance of the First World War. It is strongly linked with Armistice Day (11 November), but the poppy’s origin as a popular symbol of remembrance lies in the landscapes of the First World War. Poppies were a common sight, especially on the Western Front.” – https://www.iwm.org.uk/history/why-we-wear-poppies-on-remembrance-day
