December 1970 Flag

[December 1970 Flag] image by O. Myszor, 17 Dec 2001

I was in Gdynia today and I saw the flag, which is hung at every 17th December - on the anniversary of the workerś uprising of 14-17 December 1970 in Gdynia, Gdańsk, Szczecin and Elblag. These events were bloodily ended by the army and militia - more than 40 men were killed and it is the best known in Poland is a massacre near the city-rail station at Gdynia-Shipyard, on 17th December.
On this flag GRUDZIEŃ means "December" in Polish.
