PM tweets message to Poles on Independence Day
As Poland celebrates the centenary of regaining independence on Sunday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki sent a message to all Poles via Twitter.
"A hundred years ago, millions of dreams came true in one idea - Independence." Despite so many differences, so many difficult years, Poles showed that they are able to achieve great things together. Though the nation is built by both similarities and differences, let us all show today that we are united by Poland," the head of the Polish government wrote.
On November 11, 2018, marking the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence, celebrations are held all over around the country.
One hundred years ago, the Regency Council handed over the supreme command of the Polish army to Józef Piłsudski. In 1937, the Sejm of the Republic of Poland decided that November 11 should be celebrated as Independence Day.
Communist authorities legalised November 11 as the National Independence Day on February 15, 1989.
