100th Anniversary of In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

- In Flanders Fields, John McCrae (1872-1918)

Looking at the striking red enamel poppy that has been incorporated into this coin's design, you can almost envision the power of the blazing red fields that inspired Canadian military surgeon John McCrae to write his famous poem.

In Flanders Fields was the most popular poem of the First World War. It inspired an international movement to remember the fallen, and after one hundred years, the poem and the humble red flower remain central to Remembrance Day commemorations.
