Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is on the 11th of November.  Services are held across the country to acknowledge our war veterans and remember all Australians who have taken part in conflicts and peace-keeping operations around the world.

Traditionally, commemorative ceremonies include a laying of wreaths.  These can be all green laurel wreaths, and may include a small spray of flowers, sprig of rosemary or poppies.

Alternatively, wreaths can be made entirely from flowers.  The colours may represent a corporation, club, school, group or even a country.

Wreaths come with a ribbon place across them with the words “Lest We Forget”.
