kind of.. PL hasn't been a kingdom in over a couple of centuries so the crown really doesn't fit to be on the head but for some reason it's insisted on.. i don't get it.
plk - your leftist leanings (I'm just sayin' ;) shouldn't affect your appreciation of history and traditions that I'm sure you enjoy.
The two headed eagle you showed is not the Polish Eagle but rather the Russian snake. The crownless Polish Eagle is not a Polish Eagle either but rather the Russian Puppet Snake - a symbol of the Polish humiliation. A semi-Polish Eagle without balls if you prefer.
The crown is without a doubt the most important part of the Biały Orzeł and whereas in the past it was a symbol of the Monarchy it is now a symbol of Poland being independent again and of the Polish population being in charge, the "kings" of their own destiny.
I hope that 1,000 years from now the Polish Eagle still has a crown. ..even if it's made of trilithium or Pan-Galactic cargonite - it gotta have a crown!!!
PS. ...and yes, I like, no I treasure the In-God-We-Trust motto here in the States. Oh, and I own several guns and love Jack Daniels too! lol
There, now I feel better...
