Description
 
This historic emblem is a relic from the January 1863 uprising of Poland against Russia. It was designed by the Revolutionary Government as a reminder that the Royal Republic of Poland was a commonwealth of three nations who shared the glories and misfortunes of the state.

In its original colors the white eagle on a red shield represented Poland, the white knight on a blue shield, known as Pogon (the Chase), was the coat of arms of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, while Michael the Archangel symbolized the Duchy of Ruthenia. In using this symbol of unity, the Revolutionary Government hoped, without much success, to engage Lithuanians and Ruthenians in the common struggle against Russia. The words "Boze Zbaw Polske" - "God Save Poland" is inscribed under the crown.   Unfortunately the January Uprising failed.
