The white eagle is the national coat of arms for the country of Poland and this Polish glass red disc ornament has the white eagle emblem on the front of it wearing its signature golden crown. The national flag colors of Poland are red and white. Legend has it that Poland's founder, Lech saw a white eagle's nest and when he looked at the soaring bird, a ray of sunshine from the red setting sun fell upon its wings so that they looked like they were tipped with gold when the rest of the bird's feathers were pure white. This legendary explorer decided to settle there and made the eagle on his emblem. This personalized Poland ornament makes a great gift for anyone of Polish decent or as a special keepsake souvenir from a historic trip to Poland.
