History


The modern Polish eagle cap badge was created in 1913 based on designs from the nineteenth century. There have been many different iterations over time, including unique badges for different military branches and regiments. The badge, in all its forms, has been emblematic of the Polish military since its use by the Polish Legions in the First World War.

Due to a variety of manufacturers, there are multiple versions of the Polish Eagle Cap Badge for the Polish Army that may vary in size, composition, design, and fastener. There are period-made die struck and cast badges.

Other Polish eagle cap badges are listed in the Badges & Insignia of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (1569-1795) and Partitioned Poland (1795-1918), the Second Polish Republic (1918-1939) and the Government of the Republic of Poland in exile (1939-1989), and the People's Republic of Poland (1944-1989).
