Default Has anyone seen a type of flower called a amapola?

I have been a fan of the song Amapola and I would like to know if anyone has seen an actual amapola flower? Are amapolas beautiful flowers and what do they actually look like? I also think Amapola is a beautiful name as well

I would post a picture, but my computer won't allow pictures to download.
However, here is a youtube video (believe it or not) of amapolas (3:53 long)

So amapolas are really poppies after all. Because when I first heard the song Amapola sung by The Chase UK host Bradley Walsh I thought it was about a fictional flower and I didn't know that amapolas are really beautiful flowers that really existed. In fact due to the song Amapola being my favorite song Amapola has now become one of my nicknames that Mom often calls me. Thank you for the information and the beautiful picture of the amapolas MissT3

That's a pretty interesting fact to know about amapolas and I think they are wonderful flowers and I never knew that Amapola actually means poppy in Spanish and if you can have a listen to the version of the song Amapola by Bradley Walsh and you'll see why the song and amapolas are now my favorite flower
