In Ukrainian Fields - Slava Ukraini

I couldn't get the Russian invasian into Ukraine out of my mind for the longest time. So I decided to make an environment around it.
Both the dimensions as the main colours are based on the flag, with the sunken Moskva burning in the background to portray the Ukrainian victory. Being from Flanders myself, I wanted to add the poppies which grow all over here and are well known because of the historic poem "In Flanders Fields" of John McCrae. The Canadian wrote the poem when he was fighting in Belgium during World War 1. After the war the poppy became the symbol of remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
