The national colours of Poland, red and white, are thought to date back to at least the 13th century, and are said to be derived from the country's state Arms which feature a white eagle on a red background. While the national flag is plain red and white horizontal bands, other official flags bear the national arms and Poland is the only country in the world whose state flag is not used by all government authorities.
According to Polish law, it may only be used by Polish representations abroad, civil airports and airfields, harbour authorities and civil aircraft abroad. The national uprising of 1830-31 against the Russians saw the adoption of red and white cockades by the insurgents, although the colours were outlawed after the uprising was put down. The red and white flag was officially adopted in 1919, when Poland was reformed in the Versailles agreement.Contact us to purchase
