I had a good chat with my friend, Iwona Cichosz, who is known as the Miss Deaf International 2016 and a dancer in Poland’s “Dancing with the Stars” television show.

I asked her what the right way to sign “Poland” country is. It was completely different from the most of the people I’ve met who usually sign “Poland” by using a thumb on their nose.

I believe using a thumb on my nose is an insult to Poland country. I was wrong! It is an honorable way to sign due to the history that the video reveals. People out there had no idea about Poland sign. That’s how they all came up with “thumb” on their nose by a famous guy – Tadeusz Kosciuszko.

The proper way to sign “Poland” is to touching a shape of your “B” on your left chest, then right chest.

Cool, isn’t it?
