What are the key features of the Polish Eagle?

Interesting that Ben Franklin wanted the wild turkey to be the American symbol, because it is a very smart bird, and not the bald eagle, which is mainly a scavanger and a thief of other bird's food.

and it turns out that sickle and hammer were introduced in 1919 with no reference to communism.

Where was it introduced, nott?

I tried checking this and this is what wiki says:

This emblem was conceived during the Bolshevik Revolution.

Do you something different?

The post-habsburgian black eagle of Austria holds hammer and sickle in its claws.

Why let the truth get in the way of a good legend about the White Eagle of Poland.

Skibum, if it would help you to move your lips as you read posts, or read them slowly outloud to yourself, do so. Flying in is discouraged. I was referring to the hammer and sicle.

Thanks, Nott.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coat_of_arms_of_Austria

Discussions about the arms have been triggered in the past by differing political interpretations, especially by the use of the hammer and the sickle and the broken chains, since the crossed hammer and sickle are a widespread symbol of communism, as is the breaking of chains. Surveys have however confirmed, that understanding of the actual symbolism of the arms is widespread.

And the 'actual symbolism' is hammer for industry, sickle for agriculture, mural crown for the middle class.

The German version gives the date of ''Gesetz über das Staatswappen und das Staatssiegel
der Republik Deutschösterreich" as 9 May 1919, so it's before the Bolshevik Revolution. However, I am not sure if Addendum 202 was already there.

I've just checked the Austrian coat of arms, which bothered me always, and it turns out that sickle and hammer were introduced in 1919 with no reference to communism.

This tinnie has the the same effect on some fans too:

:) there was some discussion about what is left and what is right, remember?

If this is from Austria, then May 1934 was during the kanzlership of Dollfuss, 'austrofascist', who delegalized NSDAP in 1933. The Austrian coat of arms in this period did not have hammer nor sickle. Pretty confusing.

No, it is German made for May Day. Ater all, Nazi were a Socialist Worker's Party.

Merged thread:
The most elegant insignia Poland ever had!

I assume that these emblems were most beautiful Poland ever had throughout its history.

Yeah, one of the most beautiful insignia in the world, but what is this black **** around our eagle?

Are you a provocateur of some sort, coming here with symbols of Russian supremacy? Oh, I just checked your profile - that explains some things.

The one with the black border and the two headed eagle looks Russian to me.

Perhaps that one was during the time of ' Congress Poland ' when Poland was technically Russia but had its own autonomy.......until the mid 1860's when uprisings against the Russians began.

He encompasses it in order to make white eagle more polite.

The fact that you look on Polish matters from Mongol perspective :) Luckily your mongoloid Asian
"empire" is farther from our borders than it has ever been throughout history. It doesn't even border
our Glorious Rzeczpospolita (I don't count that little piece of ruskiland between Poland and Lithuania.)

From a Mongol state to an empire, and back to a Mongol state again. Funny how history moves in circles :)

Yes, but rather narrow circles in case of Russia. So I am sure that soon you will witness the new round of expansion...

A question for you, who composed the Preobrajensky March and when was it composed?
ConstantineK 26 | 1,259

Let say it was Peter the Great himself. )))

I don't believe it; is there a reason why you are no telling me? When you mentioned Peter the Great, how is he supposed to be related to the march?
ConstantineK 26 | 1,259

In a very simple way. Peter was alfa and omega of Russian life in those times, he was russian Jovi. He both created Preobrazhensky regiment and commissioned its march.

very interesting. now can we get back to the topic.
