The red flower is an artificial poppy worn by the British delegation to commemorate their military personnel who have died in war.

It is traditional for Commonwealth citizens and officials alike to wear the poppy each year from late October through 11 November – Remembrance Day – which marks the signing of the armistice ending WWI.

Remembrance poppies are produced by veterans' associations, who exchange the poppies for charitable donations used to give financial, social and emotional support to members and veterans of the armed forces.
