Speaking to a contact I have from the local British RBL yesterday. He had attended a service in memory of Canadian airmen from WWII based at a camp near where we live. He was asked to supply a poppy wreath to lay and asked if he could get hold of the red Canadian Maple Leaf as an insert for the wreath itself. Don't know where it came from, but as you can see by the attached picture, the round insert itself is green. Do any of our Canadian friends on here know the history of this as none of the Canadians present at the service knew why the poppy insert was this colour.
