According to pollster CBOS, 82% of respondents said symbols such as Poland’s red-and-white national flag should appear at sporting events.

Slightly less -- 62% -- said they agreed with national symbols being displayed on cars.

Half of respondents said it was appropriate for such symbols to appear on everyday items or clothing.

Only four in ten approved of the use of national symbols during political demonstrations, according to the survey by CBOS.

Respondents’ answers were clearly linked to their political views. Only 27% of conservatives felt national symbols are overused.

Among centrists the figure was 36% while among those with left-wing views 43% were concerned.
