The Enduring Symbol Of Remembrance
The forget-me-not was adopted as the flower of remembrance by the people of Newfoundland following the devastating losses suffered by the Newfoundland Regiment at Beaumont-Hamel in France during the first day of the Battle of the Somme in 1916. Like the poppy in Canada, fabric forget-me-nots were made by disabled servicemen to raise money for needy veterans leading up to Memorial Day on July 1.
