Each poppy represents one British or Colonial soldier that died during the WWI battles. This project was started in July and the last poppies will be placed on November 11. When the last one is placed there will be 888,246 ceramic poppies surrounding the tower, creating a sea of red which is being described as a Sea of Blood.
