Alanna Dochtermann - Brooch - Crocheted The Purple Poppy

$5.00

The purple poppy campaign is an complimentary or alternative poppy to the red poppy of the Royal Canadian Legion.

It is not meant in any way to undermine or reject the red poppy and its symbolism of the human lives who served and died in war. It is a way for people to recognize the significant loss of animal life that is not represented in symbol or ceremony of the red poppy.

It also makes an important distinction between animals as “heroes,” which is sometimes perpetrated by military culture, and animal as “victims.” Ideally, we will someday see the purple poppy be as synonymous with Remembrance Day as the red poppy, but in its own context.
