About National Independence Day (Poland) in brief
Poland ceased to exist for 123 years until the end of World War I, when the destruction of the neighbouring powers allowed the country to reemerge. The restoration of Poland’s independence was gradual. The date of 11 November is the one on which Marshal Józef Piłsudski assumed control of Poland. It was a day of military ceremony since 1920. The holiday was constituted in 1937 and was celebrated only twice before World War II. After the war, the communist authorities of the People’s Republic removed Independence Day from the calendar, though reclamation of independence continued to be celebrated informally on 11 November. In the 1980s, in many cities, including Warsaw, informal marches and celebrations were held, with the outlawed Solidarity Movement supporters participating. As Poland emerged from communism in 1989, the original holiday—on its original 11 November date—was restored. It coincides with the celebration of the Armistice in other countries. The parade is made up of a contingent of a regiment of two battalions, composed of two armed forces personnel. These formations, except for the 1 Honor Guard, have two extra personnel for mounting the mounting of the flag in front of the front line. These formation are formed up into: 1 Honor Company, 2 Honor Guard Company, and 2 Honor Guards Company. The Parade is led by a commanding officer of the Representative Honor Guard Regiment of the Armed Forces, usually the commanding officer or general of the Polish Armed Forces.
It is followed by the televised celebrations at Warsaw’s Presided by the President of Poland in his capacity as Commander in Chief of the armed forces. The celebrations are televised as soon as the televised event in honor of the anniversary of the restoration of Polish independence in 1918 is over. These parade formations are made up into. the contingent of two-sized formations, composed. of two Armed forces personnel, including the Polish National Guard, 2 honor guards, and other personnel of the civil services and other. services. They are led by the commanding officers of the General of the Guard, the Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Armed Forces, and the Commander in chief of the Presided of the Polish Forces, as well as the commander-in the Poland Armed Forces’s Presiding Officer in charge of the Warsaw Garrison or the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces in the Capital City of Warsaw.
