Remembrance Sunday will be celebrated on Sunday 8th under a second national lockdown; Instagram will hold the celebration this year.
Armistice Day, widely known as Remembrance Sunday, is celebrated on the second Sunday of November to remember the end of World War One and the lives lost in wars.
Every year, a two-minute silence is held at 11 am in honour of those who died in the line of duty. The symbol of Remembrance Sunday, the Poppy, is seen and worn everywhere across the UK once November comes.

On this day, there are usually ceremonies held at war memorials, churches and cenotaphs across the country.
Unsurprisingly at this point, COVID-19 has cancelled these events. Remembrance Sunday will be celebrated on social media. The hashtag Remembrance Sunday has almost 500k posts on Instagram.
Here are seven Remembrance Sunday Instagram captions for all your patriotic posts remembering those who sacrificed their lives for the country 🙏.
