Zakopane Poland, Regal Bird Wall Hanging, Handmade In 1979.

 

The White Eagle on this plate is an example of the national coat of arms of Poland being used.

The original coat of arms is a stylized white eagle with a golden beak and talons and wearing a golden crown, in a red shield. The White Eagle emblem originated when Poland's legendary founder Lech saw a white eagle's nest. When he looked at the bird, a ray of sunshine from the red setting sun fell on its wings, so they appeared tipped with gold, the rest of the eagle was pure white. He was delighted and decided to settle there and placed the eagle on his emblem.

Zakopane is a centre of Góral culture and is known informally as "the winter capital of Poland". It is a popular destination for mountaineering, skiing, and qualified tourism. Zakopane is located in southernmost Poland near the border with Slovakia. It lies in a valley between the Tatra Mountains and Gubałówka Hill.
