I walked passed this beautiful painting many times while residing in Youngstown Ohio. I discovered the painting's interesting history while writing for a monthly entertainment publication in Ohio.  

The poppy became the official flower of the American Legion September 27, 1920 in Cleveland Ohio.

After WWI the poppy flourished in Europe. Scientisits attributed the growth to soils in France and Belgium with increased lime deposits from rubble left by the war. The red poppy symbolized the blood shed by soldiers who fought and continue to fight for us.
