Polish Logo Competition #2 – Banks

The first Polandian logo competition proved to be quite popular, and the majority of answers were found extremely quickly – showing how well-travelled Polandian readers must be. On an earlier post, Island1 previously covered how there are so many banks on the streets of Polish cities. With that in mind, I present the second logo competition, looking at the logos of some of those banks.

All of these banks have branches in Poland. Many of them will not be Polish but will probably be international banks or foreign-owned. However, they can all be found trading in Poland.

Bank Logo #1

Bank Logo #2


Bank Logo #3


Bank Logo #4


Bank Logo #5


Bank Logo #6

Please note that the above image is half of the full logo

Bank Logo #7

Bank Logo #8


Bank Logo #9


Bank Logo #10


Please note that whoever can answer all ten logos in one go will have their details passed onto the relevant tax authorities, in order for his/her multiple bank accounts to be audited!

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

And the correct answers are (all found by Piotrek in record time):

1. Bank BPH SA
2. Raiffeisen Bank Polska SA
3. Nordea Bank Polska SA
4. Deutsche Bank Polska SA
5. mBank (BRE Bank SA)
6. Invest-Bank SA
7. ING Bank Śląski SA
8. Euro Bank SA
9. Bank Zachodni WBK SA
10. MultiBank (BRE Bank SA)

  2. Aww, that was quick, and seems pretty correct. Too bad I couldn’t contribute.

    Here is a polish bank joke instead:

    Back during the Solidarity days, I heard that the following joke was being told in Poland:

    A man goes into the Bank of Gdansk to make a deposit. Since he has never kept money in a bank before, he is a little nervous.

    “What happens if the Bank of Gdansk should fail?” he asks.

    “Well, in that case your money would be insured by the Bank of Warsaw.”

    “But, what if the Bank of Warsaw fails?”

    “Well, there’d be no problem, because the Bank of Warsaw is insured by the National Bank of Poland.”

    “And if the National Bank of Poland fails?”

    “Then your money would be insured by the Bank of Moscow.”

    “And what if the Bank of Moscow fails?”

    “Then your money would be insured by the Great Bank of the Soviet Union.”

    “And if that bank fails?”

    “Well, in that case, you’d lose all your money. But, wouldn’t it be worth it?”

  5. (Hm, I’ve submitted this comment several times but it doesn’t show up…?)

    Since I don’t have to contribute to the logo-answers, here is a polish bank joke instead:

  6. “submitted”, I mean. :)

  7. scatts says:

    Easy, especially as they all have 23 branches on every main street in every city and use up about 50% of all TV advertising space!

  8. Bartek says:

    When it’s all said and done I can tell you one of those banks blocks the access to Polandian to its employees. My browser at work refuses to display our page :(

  9. Decoy says:

    And Piotrek will be submitting an extra log PIT-11 next April for all of his bank accounts with his millions of PLN stashed away.

  10. Decoy says:

    Well, unfortunately Piotrek has been very quick on the draw, and has spotted all of the logos extremely quickly. With such knowledge, I would guess that he works for a bank himself, like our own Bartek has admitted to!

  11. scatts says:

    Bart,

    My company also attempts to block access to Polandian, any blog in fact as well as any personal webmail system and many other things seen to be a danger to our network.

    We (the rebellious users) have found a way around it though by switching off the “use proxy server” setting in the LAN menu under connections. It then bypasses the Big Brother Nanny machine. What was especially annoying was the removal of Firefox and only allowing IE. That we could not fix and is a daily annoyance. Silly considering FF is quite a bit safer to use than IE.

    Banks have a great deal more to lose though, if their systems go down, so I do understand why they do this.

  12. Piotrek says:

    I used to work in a bank (none of mentioned above) ;). Now I am a freelancer and I am very sorry for your IT policies defined in your corporations :DDD

  13. Decoy says:

    Hmmm, I had a feeling for you to be so quick, and to give the full title of the banks, you had to have some insider (trading) knowledge!

    Luckily, the IT policies have not yet blocked Polandian, but in a way that is bad news for Polandian, as it means that there are not enough views from my work for IT to consider blocking it. It’s a catch-22 situation!
