Flag of Poland 🇵🇱

Flag of Poland

The Polish flag 🇵🇱 consists of two equally broad stripes – red one at the bottom and white one on top. The colors are derived from the Polish emblem - a white eagle on a red background. This emblem dates back to the Middle Ages, and although the eagle was removed from the flag, white and red became the traditional colors of Poles. Polish identity has undergone numerous pitfalls over the centuries, therefore these colors have been of great importance for the Polish people, regardless of the current political situation. The symbolism of these colors has many interpretations. It may denote a white eagle flying over the sunset, or connection of the human spirit with the blood shed for freedom. Another interpretation is the wish of the Polish to live in peace and socialism.
