And if you can’t get to an event, organise your own Polish Heritage Day and share our culture with friends, children and anyone interested with this British Council pack of information available on their website (click here)
The logo of Polish Heritage Day is the red-and-white chequerboard, the flag of the Polish Airforce which was first used as the personal insignia of the Polish fighter pilot Stephan Stec, when part of Poland was under Austrio-Hungarian rule. It was adopted as the national symbol of the Airforce on 1 December 1918 and has been used ever since. It was particularly used by Polish pilots who fought in the Battle of Britain and the UK Polish Embassy have agreed for it to be used for Polish Heritage Day.
