Flag of Poland

The Civil Flag of Poland has been used since the early 20th century. The Civil Ensign and State Flag (with limited use) is shown with the coat of arms in the center of the white half of the flag.

The flag of Poland consists of two horizontal stripes of equal width, the upper one white and the lower one red. The two colors are defined in the Polish constitution as the national colors. A variant of the flag with the national coat of arms in the middle of the white stripe is legally reserved for official use abroad and at sea. A similar flag with the addition of a swallow-tail is used as the naval ensign of Poland.

HISTORY

On november 7, 1831 during the November Uprising, the Sejm decided that national colours of Poland will be those of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Coat of Arms, i.e. white and red.

In August 1, 1919, the Sejm of again independent Poland created the flag of Poland at its current shape.

Since 2004, May 2 is celebrated in Poland as Flag Day. It was established in order to educate the Polish people about the history and significance of national symbols. Flag Day is not however a public holiday.
