Rainbow Rebels reflect on Remembrance Sunday

16 Nov 2022

Remembrance Sunday

Last Sunday, the Rainbow Rebels crafted poppies of different colours (see images below):

  • The purple poppy is often worn to remember animals that have been victims of war.
  • The black poppy is a symbol that commemorates all those who have died, and are still dying, due to war and its legacy.
  • The white poppy which is intended to remember all victims of all wars, rather than just those in which British service people were involved.
  • The red poppy is a symbol of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.

They also decided on their own colours and their symbolism:

  • The yellow poppy is for joy.
  • The blue is for forgiveness.
  • The green is for growth.
