Many thanks. We do regularly monitor sites to prevent unauthorized usage. All instances and variations of the Poppy symbol is covered under this trademark. We do not have a trademark on the actual flower, however, which you may want to consider replacing the current image with.

I would suggest you start checking the whole Internet as your symbol is everywhere, and others may not know that the RCL owns the poppy. Mind you, this is not such a bad thing as people remember the sacrifices of all veterans. Nevertheless, VVi will comply with your demands. We will post your message to our site to assist your efforts in telling everybody that the poppy image and Remembrance Day is owned by the Royal Canadian Legion.
Again our apologies.

I had occasion to visit your website recently and noted that you had used the image of the Poppy. The Poppy image, as a symbol of Remembrance, is a trademark owned by The Royal Canadian Legion. As such, please remove this image from your site.
