It is very interesting to observe that the popular vision of a nation and its past has a very strong religious dimension in the Polish case. Sacred and profane visions of time, cyclical and linear, mythical and real are mixed together. Religious symbols are often tied strictly with the national discourse, so it is difficult to distinguish which symbols are more religious, and which are more national. A good example can be the image of Our Lady of Czestochowa which is often described and treated as a national emblem.The symbol of Our Lady of Czestochowa was adopted by Solidarity and also by the resistance movement of the 1980s in Poland.
