POLAND ~Coats of Arms~

Today I received my first round shaped great map postcard and it came from Poland (PL-403034).The back of the card looks almost as nice as it front whith all those wonderful stamps...Thanks a lot Magdalena!!
The territory of Poland is divided into voivodeships (provinces).The current system was introduced in the Polish parliament in 1998, and came into effect on 1 January 1999. Previously (in the period from 1975 to 1998) there had been 49 smaller voivodeships. The reform created 16 larger voivodeships (largely based on and named after historical regions) and reintroduced powiats.
