AMH from Buenos Aires, Argentina

is a splendid picture. do now that the protagonist, I see in photos above is this badge. I can not understand is if it represents a flower and the meaning of their colors, my question has little to do with photography but I wonder about the origin of this badge, since I find extremely beautiful and still remember the last year and I am left with this question. Curly big kiss. Alejandra

20 Nov 2012 2:33am

@AMH: The poppy is a well known flower used to represent "remembrance" Alejandra, you can find lots of information about its history from this link.
Thank you very much for your interest and not being afraid to ask.
Have a nice day :-)
