Read a more detailed tutorial in this later post The Remembrance Poppy. (How-to tips.)
The Poppy Appeal is launched each year in Britain in the run-up to Remembrance Sunday. The nation expresses its unequivocal support for The Royal British Legion's charity work. 'Our emphasis this year is the need to help the Afghan generation of the Armed Forces and their families - today and for the rest of their lives' says the Poppy Appeal web-site.
I designed a Remembrance Poppy (image above) in iWork/Pages following the look of the traditional Royal British Legion poppy pin. It is made up of five shapes: three ovals for pettals and the black button, and two free shapes for the stalk and the leaf.
Feel free to reuse the image and remember to donate to help the veterans and their families.
