Remembrance

According to the Peace Pledge Union, the white poppy symbol represents ‘remembrance for all victims of war, a commitment to peace and a challenge to attempts to glamorise or celebrate war’. White poppies were first produced in 1933 by the Women’s Co-operative Guild.

  1. As a Co-operative Party member, and of several Co-operatives, I endorse the wearing of a white poppy, and I am supported by Quaker friends.
