Published: Saturday 9 April 2011

Anzac Day 25th April is probably Australia's most important national occasion. it marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australia and New Zealand forces during the First World War. Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Laying of Wreaths Flowers have traditionally been laid on graves and memorials in memory of the dead.The traditional Laurel wreath is made using Laurel leaves as the base,Laurel is used in mark of honour.The spray created at the base of the wreath traditionally consists of Red Poppies as they have been recognised as the flower of remembrance. Rosemary is an ancient symbol of remembrance and is used to compliment the poppies. Rosemary is also worn on Anzac Day and is of particular significance for Australian's as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsular.A Least we Forget ribbon is placed across the wreath high on the left and low on the right symbolising the rising and setting of the sun,east to west.When placing your order this year be sure to advise the friendly team at Boydita your school ,group or organisations colours to enable us to include these in the wreath.
