The Royal Canadian Legion Poppy
The red poppy is an emblem of the RCL and is used to commemorate Canadians who died in battle. CF members shall wear the poppy on all uniforms from the last Friday of October until Remembrance Day (November 11th) and are encouraged to wear it when attending any event whose main purpose is to commemorate Canadians who died in battle.
NOTE: The wearing of the poppy with the miniature Canadian flag pin as a means of securing the poppy to the uniform instead of the provided straight pin is not authorized for any CF uniform.
I glued a magnet between the black center, and the poppy. I then use another one inside my blazer/jacket/shirt. Will do the same with my wound stripe, so I don't have to sew it on my blazer.
Attached is a useful aide de memoire, that I got the above information in yellow.
