The SEYM introduced Polish national colors in 1831, but they were officially recognized as state colors until Poland regained her independence in 1919, when the white and red flag was first flown. Polish institutions and offices abroad and airports, harbors and merchant vessels fly the flag with the national emblem. The flag of Poland features 2 horizontal strips in white and red, which are also the national colors.

This was not an official law but was made official by a presidential decree in 1955. Since the start of the twentieth century, there has been minimal changes. The only change being some slight alterations to the definition of the colour red – but more on that later.

During and after World War II these flags were used by the London-based Polish government in exile. With the demise of the Polish Peoples Republic in this flag, slightly modified became the Standard of the President of the Republic of Poland. The basic variant of the national flag is a plain white-and-red horizontal bicolor. A variant defaced with the coat of arms is restricted to official use abroad and at sea. Legal restrictions notwithstanding, the two variants are often treated as interchangeable in practice. The patriotic and staunchly Catholic members of the Bar Confederation of 1768–1772 adopted crimson – the symbol of Polish szlachta, or nobility – and blue – symbolizing Virgin Mary – as their colours.

The use of both variants was restricted, but only flying the flag with coat of arms was, from 1955 to 1985, punishable by a fine or arrest for up to one year. After 1985, unauthorised use of any national symbol was an infraction. While hoisting a flag on 1 May was acceptable, no later than the following day it had to be taken down. Horizontal bi colours of white and red being a relatively widespread design, several flags are similar but unrelated to the Polish one. In Poland, many flags based on the national design also feature the national colours.
