The poppy symbolizes many things for many people. As a flower it is a symbol of honor, sacrifice, peace and remembrance throughout history. In Chinese culture a symbol of rest, beauty and success. Poppy seed origins date back to the Minoan civilization of the Bronze Age on the island of Crete around 2700 to 1450 BC for their medicinal and culinary uses. Poppy seeds have long been used as a folk remedy to aid sleeping, promote fertility and wealth, and even to provide supposed magical powers of invisibility.
