Although still dated for last year, this reference is a good place to start for all Remembrance Day questions:

Not a recommended COA: Having your staff PhotoShop on a poppy.

The real question is: does a photoshopped poppy stay on better, or do you need to use a photoshopped Canada flag pin?  >:D

This time it's not the Legion ordering average Canadians around, the use of the poppy.

Today, the new GG tweeted that Canadians "CAN wear their poppies between Oct 27 to Nov 11".  Implying we aren't allowed to wear poppies or remember any other time of year.  :brit poppy:
