Free Printable Poppy Bunting
Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. It is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of the First World War on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”.Wikipedia
In 2020 the world changed – the pandemic came and we are all living very different lives to the one a year ago.
Because of this, the Poppy Appeal (UK) may suffer because (understandably) many volunteers are unable to assist outside shops, stations, and on the streets, collecting for the appeal.
Donating to the Poppy Appeal online is one way that you can help those in need within the Armed Forces community; serving and ex-serving personnel and their families.
The Poppy Shop also has a wide range of poppy items including pins, brooches, accessories, and more. If you can’t get out, or if you can’t find a poppy seller this year, this is another way for you to get involved.
100% of the profits from selling poppies go to the Royal British Legion who helps members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families. Their support starts after one day of service and continues through life, long after service is over.
I am not affiliated in any way with the Royal British Legion or the Poppy Day shop, but want to do my bit to help this year.
I have created a set of free printable poppy bunting flags that you can print at home and use to commemorate Remembrance Day – please donate if you can.
In 2020 we pay tribute to the men and women of the Second World War generation, and to those of today’s, who have served and sacrificed to defend our nation. We remember the collaboration of the Commonwealth and Allied nations who stood shoulder to shoulder then to secure our freedom and the communities coming together today to protect us all.The Royal British Legion

- Cut out and then punch a hole in the top corners.
- Thread onto ribbon or string and hang where desired.
- You could laminate the flags before punching holes and threading onto string, just remember to leave a little edge around the flag when cutting out from the laminating sheets otherwise they will come apart.
- I have some more poppy-themed printables coming soon and will share the links to them when they are live.
Because of lockdown and other measures, you may not be able to attend a service or other Remembrance Day activities, however, here are some ideas from the Royal British Legion website:
- Hold a small Remembrance service in your garden.
- Create a Remembrance space in your garden by planting plants that have a connection to Remembrance.
- Use Zoom, Facebook, or another online meeting resource to host an online Remembrance service or activity.
- Use their Remembrance education activities to help children learn about Remembrance.
