The Buddy Poppy, unlike the California State Flower, is red. Since 1915 then during WWI, the red poppy has grown wild on the battlefields of France, Belgium and the Turkish battlefields on the peninsula of Gallipoli. In November of 1919, Miss Monia Belle Michael, an American Women, on duty at the YMCA Overseas War Secretaries’ Headquarters in New York, read Canadian Army, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae’s poem entitled “In Flanders Field”, also known as “We Shall Not Sleep”. On that day she vowed always to wear a red poppy of Flanders Field as a sign of remembrance. Also on that day Monia wrote a poem entitled, “We Shall Keep the Faith”. Since 1920 the red Memorial Poppy has been known as the United States’ National Emblem of Remembrance
