Very, very close Stormy. It is not an actual living plant. It is associated with remembrance and a specific holiday. This holiday is known by
different names in the various countries in which it's celebrated.
You were closer with your previous guess. This became a federal holiday with it's own day of observance in Canada in 1931. Previous to that it was
celebrated on the same day as another unrelated Holiday.

It couldn't be a Rose seedling, I'm not sure what is worn for Thanksgiving or Easter other than roses or various Lilies as Lilies tend to grow
almost to December in Canada's coldest regions but I'm guessing it is from some sort of bush that grows in the wild which would be wild Roses that
can be light pink to almost red?
