Here are some actual real things that involve the poppy symbol. Some of them have support, some don't. Unless it affects revenue legions have generally taken a "live and let live" approach.
"The white poppy is a flower used as a symbol of peace"
"The Purple Poppy Campaign was first founded by Animal Aid, the UK’s oldest and largest animal rights group, in order to remember the millions of animals who killed during the First World War and to honour the animals in service today. Approximately eight million horses, donkeys, and pigeons were killed in the First World War."
"The black poppy is most commonly associated with the remembrance of black, African, and Caribbean contributions to the war effort."
"For Remembrance Day 2018 – the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War – Conservative Party donor Lord Jitesh Gadhia and the Royal British Legion launched the “khadi poppy”. This design, which was the same deep red as the original poppy, replaced the current paper style and was instead crafted from khadi, a traditional hand-woven cloth from India which bears similarities to “Gandhi’s iconic clothing”, the BBC says. The idea behind the khadi poppy was to pay tribute to and raise awareness of the service to the British Empire of people from South Asia during the First World War."
The ones above are big in a lot of Europe, I've never seen or worn anything other than red myself. I tend to believe that we should have one to honor everyone (we are too fractured already), but I am a bigger believer in freedom and what other people wear doesn't affect me at all.
I'm surprised the rainbow poppy hasn't taken off yet to be honest - I bet it will now that the nut jobs went to all of that work to hire actors to create that interview about the student being suspended.
I cringed when I heard about this one on the news expecting tons of backlash but I didn't hear of any - maybe Canada is getting more tolerant...? :-)
