Depends on the context. Your translation: "Polska zawsze będzie istnieć" or "Polska nigdy nie zginie"

For example, our Polish national anthem starts with:
"Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła, póki my żyjemy..."

and it means....Poland is not yet lost , until we (the Polish people) are alive
Or, Poland has not yet perished, until we are alive.

"There will always be a Poland"

The "a" part is curious here. Can't help but think that would translate to "Zawsze będzie JAKAŚ Polska".

PolishProverbs:
"There will always be a Poland"
The "a" part is curious here.

That's along the lines of the well-known English patriotic song "There'll always be an England". I remember it from the "Keeping Up Appearances" ["Co ludzie powiedzą!?" - the title in Polish] series. The setings for this song were not patriotic, though, as everything in this most un-patriotic British TV production ever.

Can't help but think that would translate to "Zawsze będzie JAKAŚ Polska".

No, no, no! JAKAŚ doesn't sound good in this context. And we don't want it look like a thing from the "Keeping Up Appearances" series, do we?

You're right-it really means-if not that Poland than maybe another one.SOME Poland will exist.

"There will always be a Poland"

As long as Polish teachers keep up a good job and continue educating students about useful stuff - tolerance, respect for diversity, love for democracy, emphasis on dialogue and understanding. All according to the proverb: Such will be the [future] Republic as the upbringing of its youth ...
