i've got a poland related question that was asked to me yesterday and i didnt know the answer....

what does the white eagle symbolize? :unsure:

A lot of the old European monarchies have eagles I think. Eagles and lions. This is the legend:

"The White Eagle emblem originated when Poland's legendary founder Lech saw a white eagle's nest. When he looked at the bird, a ray of sunshine from the red setting sun fell on its wings, so they appeared tipped with gold, the rest of the eagle was pure white. He was delighted and decided to settle there and placed the eagle on his emblem. He also named the place Gniezdno (currently Gniezno) from the Polish word gniazdo (nest).
This tale could be considered as an allusion to the legend of the city of Rome which was founded by Romulus and Remus. Auspicium is the ancient rite of observing birds of prey flights in order to get support of gods for future arranged actions. A less romantic version assumes that Poland adopted the emblem from the Roman Empire (like many other European countries)."


the whole wikipage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coat_of_arms_of_Poland
the evolution is fun!

When Poland was communist the eagle lost its crown. But as you see got it righ back after 1989!
If we have any historians here, feel free to add or correct all info :giggle:

Re: POLISH fans get in here!

No idea, was wondering the same thing. Also, do you know which year is that?
If the child in their arms is Prince (the COVERED one on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd photo), then this is not earlier than around 1999 me thinks...

it was taken in Munich on March 28 1998, when Michael was visiting Circus Krone. On MJJPictures it´s said that Michael spend a couple of weeks in Munich visiting some friends.

The most basic one is the one without the Eagle.
I can´t see whether the other one has the Eagle with the crown -
If it´s without the crown, then it´s outdated (the crown was only taken out for the period of communism and returned by the democratic government after 1989)
If it´s with the crown, then it´s kind of "fuller" version, but not the one officially used. Our Constitution just says that the basic flag is white and red. :D

lol, so we were probably very close, I was standing in the second raw, in the corner closer to the stage.

Sure I remember running there! We were already tired after the journey with PKP (Polish Public Raliways) and hours of standing there before they let us in.

I was there with my lil sister, and she was running also, but at some point her backpack opened and all the apples that our mom gave us were on the ground. :stretcher:
She stopped and started picking the apples back. And at this point I could see THOUSANDS of people passed us in those precious coouple of second and I remember shouting at her: "p-l-e-a-s-e leave these damned apples and leeets run!" :rant:

But we were somehow able to get to the best corner.

the crowd was pushing like hell. I needed to grab her in front of me and let her some air.
