May 2 is observed as the Day of the Polish Flag.

During the main ceremony, the Polish flag has been hoisted at the mast of the Royal Castle's Clock Tower in Warsaw. Head of the National Security Bureau Aleksander Szczygło recalled that during the communist period, the white-and-red flags were removed after May Day so that they were not displayed on May 3, the anniversary of the democratic constitution of 1791. Constitution Day was re-introduced as a state holiday after the collapse of communism.

What's the scoop with the Polish flags in Wroclaw?

I just got off the phone with my daughter who arrived there just yesterday. She couldn't buy a flag. I will need to go to the corner of Victoria and Highway 8 here in Niagara and get her one of the 3 sizes of the Polish flag they sell.
