The Polish flag has a simple design and is very easy to remember, yet it is rich in its symbolism. It is divided into two horizontal parts, the upper of white color, and the lower or the color red.
There is also a Polish flag variant with the Polish coat of arms in the middle of the white part. It dates back to sometime in the 13th Century. It represents a white eagle on a red shield, with a golden beak and a crown. This flag is used for official purpose and international purposes.
