Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word Kotwica.


  1. Kotwica

    The Kotwica was a World War II emblem of the Polish Secret State and Armia Krajowa. It was created in 1942 by members of the AK Wawer "Small Sabotage" unit, as an easily usable emblem for the Polish struggle to regain independence. The initial meaning of the initials "PW" was "Pomścimy Wawer". The Wawer massacre was considered to be one of the first large scale massacres of Polish civilians by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland. At first, Polish scouts from sabotage groups painted the whole phrase upon walls. However, this was soon shortened to two letters, P and W, after a quick internal contest organized by the AK with the winning design by Anna Smoleńska from Gray Ranks. She died at Auschwitz in 1943, at the age of twenty-three.
