Flag Day has been celebrated in Poland since an act of parliament passed in February 2004 and is commemorated alongside Polonia and Poles Abroad Day.

President Andrzej Duda took part in festivities marking ‘Flag Day’, which bridges the gap between the national holidays of Labour Day on 1 May and 3rd May Constitution Day.

The three national holidays form the ‘long weekend’ spring holiday in Poland.

President Duda attended the raising of the Polish flag at the clock tower of the Royal Castle in Warsaw at 11.15 am

He later honoured several Poles who have made outstanding contributions to society among the Polish diaspora, at a ceremony at the Belvedere Palace.

The white and red flag is ours, it is shared,” the president said.

“It belongs to all those who live in Poland and all those who live abroad but feel Polish in their hearts,” he added.

Polish Flag Day in Poland is a very important celebration, much more so than for any other country in the world. Poland does not take for granted its independence nor freedom – which has been lost and re-won four times in it’s long and tumultuous history.

Poland has been partitioned four times in its history, the first in August 1772, between Prussia, Russia, and Austria; the second partition in January 23, 1793, between Russia and Prussia, as well as in 1795.

 

Poland ceased to exist as a nation-state for 123 yearsand finally regained it’s independence in 1918. But within a very few short months, the newly established Second Republic of Poland was embroiled in war with Russia, the latter whose imperialist ambitions were focused on expansionism that is, to recapture Polish territory it had lost as a result of the Treaty of Versailles. The Russians were ultimately crushed by the Polish army, and suffered a humiliating defeat at the Battle of Warsaw – a battle which Poles refer to as the “Miracle at the Vistula”.

On September 1st,1939 the Polish nation was attacked by Germany from the north, west and south, and on the 17th of September by Russia from the east. This was the fourth partition in the history of Poland, and the start of World War II. Hitler and Stalin’s objective were not only to conquer Polish territory, but rather to eradicate the Polish nation altogether – Polish Culture, the Polish People, the Polish Language. In fact, the German soldiers shot anybody caught playing Polish music, or even flying the Polish Flag.

The Polish armed forces were the first to fight the German and Soviet invaders, against insurmountable odds. Despite treaties of mutual assistance with Great Britain and France, Poland was abandoned to fight alone.Though the allies won the war, Poland – the 4th largest ally – was betrayed into the hands of Stalin, and languished behind the iron curtain for over four decades!

 

On Polish Flag Day throngs of Poles (in Poland, and around the world) proudly display the Polish colors of White and Red. But the Polish flag is more than a symbol of national identity and pride. It is the embodiment of the Polish Soul. It is a commemoration of Poles who lost their lives to defend their beloved motherland.
Throughout Poland’s rich history, (one that has spanned over a thousand years), there have been an astounding number of flags representing the changing configuration of Polish statehood. It is indeed a testament to its greatness as a nation, and to the fervent determination and perseverance of a people that Poland fought for its freedom and would not be subdued nor defeated by its enemies.
