Hello and welcome.

If you search the internet for 'silk Flanders Field poppies', the links will mostly lead to the 'buddy poppy' or to the poem.

May I suggest you try searching for images of 'red silk poppies' ( without the words 'Flanders Field'); you will find several suppliers. From there it is just matter of selecting the one that fits the type you need.

Alternatively, you could contact the local American Legion Auxiliary and ask; they may be able to direct you to a local source.

I found this one:

Thank you. I searched a lot on the internet but the only flanders poppies I found were the inexpensive ones you pin on your lapel. I have a couple of requests out there to some silk floral venders. Thanks for the response !

Your profile didn't give any indication of where you live, so I am limited in my answers.

Visit your local florist and ask them to contact their artificial flower wholesale suppliers. Most wholesale places require you to use the 'middleman', but you can still get a good deal. ( I have purchased entire cases of silk plant material this way.)
