And we want to showcase just how deep that pride runs.
So, to mark the occasion we are urging as many readers as possible to send in snaps of them wearing a poppy - be it red, white or purple.
This photo gallery of appreciation will carry extra poignancy this year with Armistice Day (November 11) falling on Remembrance Sunday and marking 100 years since the cessation of hostilities in World War One.
Readers can get involved by commenting on our Facebook post or sending in a picture of themselves wearing a poppy to [email protected]
Please include your name and where you are from.
