I notice that the eagle appears everywhere except on the National Flag in international context. What is the reasoning behind this? I know other countries show their coat of arms in civl ensigns (i.e. Austria, Spain) but only some show the coat of arms on the flags when seen in other countries.

so, why this:


Instead of this:

Hey, sorry it took me so long to reply - I have a realy busy month at work.


According to the Coat of Arms Act:
Only in Polish - http://isip.sejm.gov.pl/servlet/Search?todo=file&id=WDU19800070018&type=3&name=D19 800018Lj.pdf

Flag without coat of arms is used by:

1. The Sejm (lower house of parliament);
2. The Senate (upper house of parliament);
3. The President of the Republic of Poland;
4. The Council of Ministers (cabinet) and the President of the Council of Ministers (Prime Minister);
5. Local legislatures – during their sessions;
6. Other state and local government organs – on national holidays.
Additionally, the national flag without coat of arms is used as an ensign for inland navigation.

Flag with coat of arms are should be only flown:

1. on or in front of Polish embassies, consulates and other representative offices and missions abroad, as well as by Polish ambassadors and consuls on their residences and vehicles;
2. at civilian airports and heliports;
3. on civilian airplanes – only during international flights;
4. on buildings of seaport authorities;
5. as a merchant (civil) ensign.

Notice that Polish flag without coat of arms is very similar to H signal flag (I have a pilot on board) in international maritime signal flags system. That’s why all Polish ships have flags with coat of arms.
