Continuing the tradition of respect for Veterans, wreaths are laid at cenotaphs’ during Remembrance Day Services. The tradition of using wreaths to show respect dates back to Roman and Greek times. Woven bay laurel tree leaves were worn as crown for victors of sporting events and military campaigns. The foliage of bay laurel trees has become of symbol of both victory and death.
