Polish Flag Raising
November 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
The City of Jersey City, Mayor Steven Fulop, the Municipal Council Members and the Office of Cultural Affairs were proud and honored to recognize The Committee for the Conservation of the Katyn Monument & Historic Objects and the Polish American Community as we celebrate the 102nd Anniversary of Independence of Poland during the Flag Raising Ceremony held on Thursday, November 12, 2020. The Star-Spangled Banner national anthem was played followed by Poland’s national anthem.
The contributions of the Polish American community in the fields of education, politics, religion, culture, science, industry and business have helped to shape Jersey City. These accomplishments have unquestionably been an important asset to our community and to our nation’s growth and cultural development.
We urge all Jersey City residents to join in recognizing the significant contributions of the Polish American people to our great City and nation. This momentous occasion is a reflection of the camaraderie built between the United States and Poland and our enduring love for freedom, liberty and democracy that today the world is still inspired by.
