Unofficial mottos of Poland


Unofficial mottos of Poland

Poland does not have an official state motto, i.e., one that is declared as such by national law.

There are however some mottos which appear commonly on banners, flags and other symbols in Poland.

The phrase "Bóg, Honor, Ojczyzna" ("God, Honor, Fatherland"), which is the most common phrase on currently issued military standards.

Another phrase commonly shown on military banners is "Za wolność Naszą i Waszą" ("For our freedom and yours"). It dates back to the times when Polish soldiers, exiled from the partitioned Poland, fought in various independence movements all over the world.
