The red poppy is worn on the 11th day of the 11th month which is remembrance day. The poppy is worn on Remembrance Day NOT Anzac Day, although the red poppy is now starting to be worn on Anzac Day too, but it was originally on Remembrance Day. It is worn because the soldiers of World War II fought in battlefields full of red poppies in Europe. It symbolizes those who fought and the blood lost from the soldiers and the lives lost of many. It's just a little symbol to remind us that the soldiers went into battle for us, for Australia, for our well being, for our country.

We all (traditionally) have a minute of silence on the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th hour to remember those who fought. It's at 11:00am because at that very time on the 11th of November 1918, the guns fell silent, and although those whose lives were lost, the war was finally over.

Anyways you are getting confused with Remembrace day with ANZAC day. We do wear red poppies on Anzac Day though but it's traditionally Remembrace day cuz Remembrace day is when they fought in the feilds of red poppies. So yeah. Remembrace day and ANZAC day are very special days.
