Over 200,000 patriots marched in Warsaw on Sunday to celebrate Poland's independence, despite the outgoing feminist mayor trying to ban the event earlier this month to stop "aggressive nationalism."
Huge crowds have been celebrating the centenary of Poland's independence, amid controversy over a decision to include far-right groups.
Opposition parties boycotted the event.
Most participants in Sunday's march in Warsaw were seen carrying Polish flags and wearing red-and-white armbands, but some were holding banners representing far-right parties from Poland and Italy.
President Duda had said he wanted the march to be a proud and joyful celebration and warned that anyone carrying offensive banners or chanting the types of slogans heard at last year's event - such as "Pure Poland, white Poland" - would be dealt with by the police.The feminist outgoing mayor tried to ban the march earlier this month to stop "aggressive nationalism" but it was overturned by the courts:
