Buddy Poppy

Inspired by Col. John McCrae's "In Flanders Fields," a poem about those who fought and died in France during World War I, the poppy is distributed by veterans organizations around the world as a memorial flower.

Since 1922, the artificial Buddy Poppy has been dispensed by the VFW as a means of raising funds to help needy and disabled veterans, dependents of veterans, widows and orphans of deceased veterans.
