doodlewear 'ANZAC Tribute' (February 2023) art print long sleeve t shirtby NZ Wildlife Artist Auntie Betty Illustration. This high quality long sleeve tee features an art print of a realistic Flander's Poppy, which is a symbol of World War I, along with the national plant symbols of New Zealand (the Silver Fern) and Australia (the Golden Wattle). The three plants together represent the ANZACS (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps). This symbolic artwork was created using Derwent Intense pencils with coloured pencil, and the artist has digitally signed the artwork.
"The current conflict in Ukraine has really brought home what the ANZACs went through and what we owe them for their service and sacrifices."

Every little bit counts towards helping those who have sacrificed so much for our safety and well-being.
"New Zealand and Australia share a special bond - always there for each other when it truly counts. The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps served and made the ultimate sacrifice in World Wars I and II, as well as other conflicts and peacekeeping missions. On April 25th, we will honour and remember how the ANZAC troops fought for our freedom and the freedom of others.
During World War I, the ground disturbance caused by warfare resulted in Flanders poppies blooming between the trench lines and no man's lands on the Western front. The poppy has since become a symbol of Remembrance Day and ANZAC Day. In combination with New Zealand's national plant, the Silver Fern, and Australia's national flower, the Golden Wattle, this design serves as our tribute to the ANZACs and expresses our gratitude for their sacrifices."
Long sleeve t shirts are available in adults sizes.
