"Last week, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki issued guidelines for all state administration offices so that national flags are hung on them from May 2 to November 11 for... the centenary of Polish independence,” said Deputy Interior Minister Paweł Szefernaker.
“We would like to appeal to all Poles to also hang out red-and-white [flags] during this period," he added.
Poland marks Constitution Day on May 3 while November 11 is Independence Day, commemorating the anniversary of the restoration of Poland's sovereignty.
Poland regained independence on November 11, 1918, the day World War I ended, after 123 years of partition by Russia, Austria and Prussia.
