Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Forget-Me-Not Day

On November 11th each year, America remembers the veterans of all wars. On the day before, it is a day to remember and support those veterans who have returned from serving their conflict with scars of the battles.

National Forget-Me-Not Day was created in 1921 to raise funds for services for returning injured soldiers. At the time, the existing hospitals were insufficient to support the numbers of returning disabled veterans.

Though the color changes, flowers have become symbols of the sacrifice made by those who protected our freedom.

In 1921, the tradition of buying poppies in the UK and Canada began with a similar aim. In France, it is the symbol of remembrance is the bleuet, or cornflower. It was chosen because cornflowers have traditionally symbolized "pure and delicate" sentiments.
