It is a national holiday in Poland. Buildings and streets throughout the country will have Polish flags flying. Polish television and radio broadcast patriotic films and songs. And events, celebrations, parades and marches take place in many towns and cities.

As the date also marks the end of fighting in the First World War, Poland’s Independence Day falls at the same time as Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, or Veteran’s Day, celebrated by other countries.
