Giant ANZAC Poppy - Auckland Domain

This ANZAC Day, Spratt Financial Group is truly proud to be involved in supporting the creation of the world's largest poppy in Auckland Domain. The poppy is made up of thousands of red discs, inscribed with messages of remembrance and support from everyday New Zealanders from all walks of life. It is a moving experience to behold as I did when I took the photos below. It is especially incredible now as the poppy is completely filled in, ready for the breaking of dawn on ANZAC day.

We encourage everybody in the area to get down and see the poppy for yourself. It truly is an amazing project, and it will be the site of a spectacular dawn service on ANZAC day as well. Spratt Financial was delighted to get involved, providing insurance for the poppy itself and its creators free of charge. It is the least we can do to help bring this to life.

We wish all New Zealanders and Australians a wonderful ANZAC day and we hope you will all take time to remember the sacrifices of the ANZACs and all those who gave their lives defending our country and our way of life. And now, you can view a special timelapse video of the poppy coming together here. Be sure to check it out.
