Remembrance Day 2017

lest we forget - remembrance day

Remembrance Day, also known as Poppy Day, is celebrated annually on the 11th November. It commemorates the day that World War I ended, at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. Traditionally, a two-minute silence is held at 11am to remember the members of the armed forces who died serving in the line of duty.

A familiar symbol for Remembrance Day is the red poppy. The significance of the poppy derives from the poem entitled “In Flanders Fields” written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, in 1915. The poppy is recognized by its bright red colour, and today, is worn in remembrance of the fallen soldiers. Poppy flowers double in symbolism as red bloodshed of the servicemen and women who died fighting and protecting their country. Pinning an artificial red poppy to clothing on Remembrance Day honours the fallen.

In the Caribbean, this day is observed by memorials and services such as the laying of wreaths, parades of military organizations, minutes of silence and gunfire. The Cayman Islands as a British overseas territory recognizes Remembrance Day as a public holiday. This year, the public holiday will take place on Monday 13th November.
