The symbol of remembrance in France to the fallen in all wars and to help those who remain.
The flower was chosen to embody the National Symbol of Remembrance for France.
A legacy from the trenches in the Great War. Symbolic of the young soldiers of France in their bright new uniforms of Horizon Blue dubbed ‘Blueberries’
A flower of the field which in spite of the horrors and chaos of the trenches continued to flourish and grow on the battlefields.
Not surprising that the Cornflower became synonymous with the terrible sacrifice and ultimately a symbol of remembrance.
The Cornflower is such a beautiful delicate flower difficult to capture in any medium especially metals and precious metals, after many attempts to emulate the three-dimensional effect that characterises the flower into a practical wearable item we are proud of the result and hope you will wear it with pride as an everyday symbol lest we ever forget. Every piece is back stamped with our signature Classic Badge logo.
