Description
 
The Polish emblem dates back to medieval pennants, when the flag was all red with a white eagle. The eagle was adopted as the national symbol of the Polish State in the 15th century, and continued until the end of the 18th century when Poland lost her state independence. When Poland regained her independence in 1918, the white eagle again became the national emblem, and in 1919 red and white were officially recognized as state colors. During the time of Communist domination after World War II, the eagle was deprived of it's crown, which was restored after the fall of Communism in 1989.
