Solidarno뜻 flag

[Soldarnosc flag] by Antonio Martins, 11 May 1999

Solidarno뜻: Lech Walesa's party which struggled for liberty: Polish flag with the Solidarno뜻 signature on the white stripe.
Luc Baronian, 18 May 1999

"Solidarnosc" ("Solidarity") is not the party, but trade union. The full name is: Niezalezny Samorzadny Zwiazek Zawodowy "Solidarnosc" (Independent Self-Governing Trade Union "Solidarity"). Created 1980.
Flag of "Solidarity" is plain white with the signature. White-red bicolor with signature on white stripe might be used during
anti-communist demonstrations in 1980-es, but was never official flag of "Solidarity".
