A 2001 proposal
Claiming that white and red colors are outdated, obsolete and not relevant
in present day's reality, Gdansk's artist, Grzegorz Klaman, is proposing
a new flag for the Polish III Republic - white and red separated by the
black band to symbolise the mourning for high expectations, dreams of better
future and bombastic promises of the politicians of various orientations.
The flag was first hoisted in downtown Cracow on March 15th, 2001 during
the art exhibition on "Cold War"

Is the Red *supposed* to be on top, upside down in distress?
Dean McGee, 25 Jan 2002
Yes, I forgot to add it, that was the intention of the artist.
Chrystian Kretowicz, 26 Jan 2002
I do not think even one Pole in million ever heard of the "2001 proposal"
of Polish flag! Is anybody's phantasy be published here?
