May 2 – Flags of the Republic of Poland

In the Act of 20 February 2004r. The amendment of the Act on the Republic of Poland’s emblem, colors and hymn in Article 6a, added on 2 May was established on Flag of the Republic of Poland. Establishment on May 2 has had its reasoning in history. May 2 was a day in the People’s Republic of the mandatory removal of the flag after the Labor Day, due to the prohibition of celebrating the anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution of May 3. The January 18, 1951 holiday day bill was a three-day holiday. There were several reasons. Constitution Day 3 May traditionally linked to the Poles’ struggle for independence from the partitions during the communist rule in Poland. On this day there were protest actions, demonstrations, the plea for freedom and statehood. In addition, May 3, 1920 has officially become a nationwide religious holiday because the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Poland on this day. Thus, since 2004 in Poland – the day of flag removal became a day of honoring it. On this day is also the anniversary of the Second World War, when in 1945. By the Polish soldiers, a white-red flag hung in Berlin, symbolically ending the epoch of the Nazi occupation. On May 2, Polonia Day and Poles Day are also celebrated abroad.

May 3 – Constitution May 3, 1791.

The authors of the May 3 Constitution were King Stanislaus August Poniatowski, Ignacy Potocki and Hugo Kołłątaj. There was no obstruction during the deliberations during which the Constitution was passed. During the four-year session of the Sejm, many members of parliament, working on behalf of neighboring states (Russia, Prussia or Austria), objected to the establishment of the Basic Law.
The opportunity came on May 3, 1791, when many opponents of the constitution did not return from Easter holidays. After seven hours of deliberations the Sejm approved the constitution, and King Stanislaw August Poniatowski signed it.
The creators of the May 3 Constitution described it as “the last will and will of the dying Fatherland.”
