Poppies, New Lynn RSA

Red poppies just like the one on the wall grace many a buttonhole from Friday before Anzac Day (25/04). They symbolise the poppies of Flanders and commemorate soldiers who served and died in military conflicts.

This poppy wall used to be located by Memorial Square around the corner, but in the course of the development of the Merchant Quarter it was relocated to its present place in the grounds of the New Lynn Memorial RSA.
