3 Ways to Show Your Appreciation on Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a time to remember the veterans who have served our country and passed away as a result of that service. Showing your appreciation to veterans who have passed, their family members or even veterans within your local community with a bouquet of flowers is a way to honor and respect those individuals who have made sacrifices for our freedom.

Red, White and Blue

Select a bouquet of flowers in red, white and blue as a symbol of the country and a show of appreciation for the sacrificing that an individual has made for our freedom.

The colors of the flag are patriotic and respectful of the beliefs of the soldiers who have passed away or who have been injured during service to the country. It is always appropriate to send the flowers to veterans or their families during Memorial Day with the colors of the United States flag.

Simple White Flowers

A simple bouquet of white roses or lilies can be a show of respect and mourning for those who have passed away. Even though the colors of flowers that are most appropriate for a funeral can vary based on the country and religious beliefs of an individual, white flowers are always appropriate as a show of appreciation and remembrance.

You can leave flowers on a veteran’s grave or you can send a bouquet to the family members who have been left behind after a loved one passed away in a war zone.

Red Poppies

If you want to draw on history, then red poppies are a way to show your appreciation, respect and love. According to U.S. Memorial Day, Moina Michael was the first person to wear red poppies on Memorial Day to honor the military men and women who died during service to the country.

Red poppies came to symbolize the valor of military heroes with the idea that their deeds and bravery does not die.

Memorial Day is a time to remember the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Whether you send flowers to family members who have been left behind, place a bouquet on a grave or even send flowers to military veterans, the gesture is often appreciated.
