I'm making a large (around 1.2 x 1.5m) Polish sort of banner, a white vertical stripe on the left and a red vertical stripe on the right. In front will be the regular white eagle.
But I need some advice: since this is a national symbol I want to stick to "the rules". The design that I am thinking of has the eagle directly on the banner (here is a layup with a paper cutout: hbar.cc/files/banner1.jpg ). However most that I have seen show the eagle on the red shield
Can I put the eagle on directly, without the shield? Or is this too unorthodox?
