This drawing shows the stylized outlines of two olive branches and a circle of intertwined red poppies. Olive branches are a symbol of peace. However the dove wasn’t included in this drawing. Poppies are a common wild flower, and the state flower of California. As the source of opium, poppies have long been associated with sleep and death. The red poppy is also a symbol of peace and World War One due to the poem “In Flanders Field” by John McCrae. A red poppy is worn on Remembrance Day in the UK and commonwealth countries.
