About Remembrance Day
Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed on 11 November in Commonwealth countries to honor the members of the armed forces who have lost their lives in the line of duty during World War I. It is a day to remember the end of hostilities of the war which formally ceased at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
During the war, red poppies bloomed during some of the worst battlefields of Flanders, making their brilliant red colour a symbol apt for the blood spilled in the war, thus the day is also known as Poppy Day.
About Heroes' Day
Hari Pahlawan (Indonesian for Heroes' Day) is a day that is celebrated annually on 10 November in Indonesia in commemoration of the Battle of Surabaya which took place in 1945. The battle was fought between pro-independence Indonesian soldiers and militia against British and Dutch troops as a part of the Indonesian National Revolution. Surabaya, the second-largest city in Indonesia was conquered by British Indian troops acting on behalf of the Netherlands.
Considered as the revolution's heaviest fought single battle, the battle helped galvanise Indonesian and international support for Indonesian independence and went on to become a national symbol of Indonesian resistance.
