Polish Peoples' Flag Day

perhaps following the American Flag Day holiday the Parliament of Polish Republic established a flag day in 2004.

It is also the Day of the Polish Diaspora  {''Polonia''} all around the globe.

Holiday is a holiday naturally, but this year the Polish public TV (TVP) produced the Flag Day advertisement in which several people I know personally  - reeanctors and historical artists - took part and did it quite splendidly.
The little film shows more than a thousand years of Polish national colors and national history.

Winged Hussara reenactors Radek Szleszynski and Dariusz Bielecki, and the XVIII century Polish Commonwealth and XIX century  cavalry reenactor uhlan Dariusz Senator  participated in this filming, showing their period equipment, and in case of the winged hussars also showing off their well trained horses and horse tack ( the beautifully reconstructed horse bridles etc by Radek Szleszynski).

This is the TVP movie - [ film ]
