The Red Poppy flowers message is… To remember those who have passed away, to honour those we have lost and protect the memories of all that we love. It remembers the fallen and encourages the development of our own sense of inner peace.
The Matilda (Orange) Poppy is to be held in honour, acknowledgement and respect for all our living ADF and veterans’ past, present and future… It is the cultivation of the belief for a richer life in which to be proud.
The “Matilda Poppy” is a gift of thanks to those who have sacrificed selflessly in service of their country, its people and for those they love. It is a repayment of understanding and can be given as a gesture of heartfelt sincerity or worn by the buyer as a show of respect for those who served past and present.
A Matilda Poppy will represent all that we as Australians believe in, mateship, camaraderie, respect, and strength, it is to show your acknowledgment and gratitude to all those who serve.
The Orange of the “Matilda Poppy” is the closest match to the shade of the sun, so it is symbolic of Australian military service and illuminates expansion, friendship and community. If one could capture and concentrate the sun in a flower, the result would be bright, luminous orange flowers. Orange in flowers offer happiness and joy and to look upon an orange flower is to immediately feel the warmth of love.
