A variety of Polish flags are defined in current Polish national law, either through an act of parliament or a ministerial ordinance. Apart from the national flag, these are mostly military flags, used by one or all branches of the Polish Armed Forces, especially the Polish Navy. Other flags are flown by vessels of non-military uniformed services.
A single specimen of the flag on or in front of a public office building indicates its official role. Multiple flags, on the other hand, are normally used to decorate both public and private buildings to mark special occasions, such as national holidays. In practice, however, the restriction is often ignored and the two flags, with and without the coat of arms, are treated as interchangeable. The variant with the coat of arms is particularly often used by the Polonia, or Polish diaspora outside Poland, especially in the United States. Additionally, the national flag without coat of arms is used as an ensign for inland navigation.

These flags all follow the same basic design; a white flag with a horizontal stripe whose width is 1/5 of the flag’s width. In the middle, each flag is emblazoned with the national coat of arms superimposed on a golden or yellow anchor whose height is 3/5 of the flag’s width. The middle stripe is broken in the middle and does not touch the anchor or the arms. The type of special service performed by the ship is indicated by the color of the middle stripe.
Very appropriately in light of the country’s turbulent and often tragic history, the Polish national anthem is titled Poland Has Not Yet Perished. That sentiment is echoed by Poland’s national symbol, the white eagle on a field of red, which has remained constant for more than seven hundred years. Originating as a coat of arms in the thirteenth century, the white eagle on red has appeared in many different versions. In flag form it served the early Polish kings as a a royal banner.

The official polish flag for general use consists simply of two horizontal fields of equal size, with the top one white and the bottom one red. The flag that features Poland’s white eagle set against a red shield on the white field is known as a “”bandera”” (ship’s flag or ensign). According to Polish flag tradition, it is meant to be flown by Polish ships at sea, Polish diplomatic missions and other official institutions abroad, and at special events.
