Footnote: The Order of Polonia Restituta (Order of the Rebirth of Poland) is a Polish state order established on February 4, 1921. It is conferred to both military and civilians, as well as to foreigners, for outstanding achievements in the fields of education, science, sport, culture, art, economics, national defense, social work, civil service, or for furthering good relations between countries. The Order of Polonia Restituta is sometimes attributed as a Polish successor to the Order of the Knights of Saint Stanislaus, Bishop and Martyr, known as the Order of Saint Stanislaus, founded in 1765 by the last King Stanisław August Poniatowski of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, to honour supporters of the Polish crown.
