Poland by Kinga Monika Wiktoria Klaudia
There is a legend of three brothers who founded the Slavic nations of Poland, Czech and Russia. The three brothers, Lech, Czech and Rus went hunting together but each of them followed a different prey and eventually they all traveled in different directions. Rus went to the east, Czech headed to the west to settle on the Ríp Mountain, while Lech traveled to the north until he came across a magnificent white eagle guarding her nest. Startled but impressed by this spectacle, he decided to settle there. He named his settlement Gniezno (adjective from gniazdo, or "nest") and adopted the White Eagle as his coat-of-arms which remains a symbol of Poland to this day.
