Papaver orientale (var. unknown, but "Checkers", perhaps?

I bought this one a few years ago at the local school fete, for 50 pence.

I have Checkers David and it does look like it, grew it from seed, all came up like yours but just one opened with same markings but red.

I think that this is "Checkers"after all, Simbad. Your one with red markings sounds very interesting. Have you managed to identify it yet?

No haven't David, every year it flowers forget to take picture, must remember next year.

My first thought for yours was "Danish Flag" but the colours are the other way round, of course, as I quickly discovered. Hope you manage to find out! :-)
