Remembrance Day

 

A century ago, on 11 November, the First World War ended, and over 16 million people sacrificed for a brief moment of peace. To commemorate those who died in the line of duty and to show commitment to peace, from 1919, Hong Kong, together with member states of the Commonwealth of Nations, have observed a memorial to commemorate the soldiers on the Remembrance Day. Howbeit, Remembrance Sunday has been observed in Hong Kong since the liberation of Hong Kong in 1945 and has ever since ceased to be the same as other regions.

The Remembrance Day is also known as the Poppy Day. The remembrance poppy is based on the red Flanders poppies that grew in Flanders despite the chaos and destruction in war. During the war, Flanders in Belgium was heavily bombed. After seeing his friend, Alexis Helmer, killed in a German attack, Canadian physician John McCrae wrote the poem “In Flanders Field”. The poem appealed to people who suffered from the brutality of battles and bloodshed, and it became popular around the world. McCrae wrote, “If ye break faith with us who die / We shall not sleep, though poppies grow / In Flanders fields.” The red poppy thus became a symbolic emblem of the Remembrance Day. Every year, on 11 November, people around the world wear a red poppy. Lest we forget the sacrifices made for peace.

The Remembrance Day Ceremony in Hong Kong has been held by the Royal British Legion Hong Kong and China Branch and the Hong Kong Ex-Servicemen’s Association annually. The public is welcomed to attend, and the details of the ceremony are as follows:
Date: 11th November 2018
Time: 10:45 am to 11:45 am
Venue: The Cenotaph, Central
