A total of 446 deputies last week supported the designation, while one voted against and none abstained, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.
The resolution passed by Polish lawmakers paid tribute to Wybicki, noting that 2022 will mark the 200th anniversary of his death as well as 275 years since his birth and 225 years since he wrote his "Dąbrowski’s Mazurka," which was originally entitled "The Song of the Polish Legions in Italy."
Wybicki was born on September 29, 1747 in what was then the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. He died on March 10, 1822 in the part of Poland controlled by Prussia.
Poland regained independence on November 11, 1918, the day World War I ended, after 123 years of partition by Russia, Austria and Prussia.
Wybicki's "Dąbrowski’s Mazurka" became the country's official anthem, also known as "Poland Is Not Yet Lost," in 1927.
