National Flowers of Remembrance Pin, To Commemorate the 1918 Armistice. LWF_B009 – Lest We Forget UK
Flowers of the Nations who fought on the Western Front in the Great War 1914 – 1918, stylised in this beautiful Brooch/Lapel Pin. After 4 long years of war an Armistice was signed in November 1918, I created this pin to commemorate that event,
Simple wild flowers adopted by the principal antagonists on the Western Front, as a national flower for remembrance and to recognise and help those who returned.
Four flowers, four ways of remembering the Great War, not surprising that these Floral symbols became synonymous with the terrible sacrifice and continue to this day.
