Poland Independence Day – November 11

Poland celebrated independence from the Russian Empire, Kingdom of Prussia, and Habsburg Empire in 1918. This holiday is observed as a non-working day of the year. The holiday was constituted in 1937 but only celebrated twice before World War II. The date corresponds with other countries Veterans Day, Remembrance Day, or Armistice Days.  Coincidentally, all of these holidays and Polish Independence Day all emerged as holidays at the end of World War I.

Let’s observe Poland’s Independence by learning about their flag and what it symbolizes.
