This is a popular flag during games. Full club
name: SSA Arka Gdynia (SSA means Sportowa Spółka Akcyjna (Sport
S.A.); arka means an ark). The club was found in 1929, but it has a name
Arka since sixties. Now it's playing in the Polish Second Division (the level
is equal to the Italian Serie B). Arka won the Polish Cup in 1979 and since fifties
it has never played below the Third Division. The club colours are yellow and blue.
For more precise information (also about the club team), you can visit the unofficial
club page (in Polish). May be it is interesting that fans are using
also a Swedish national flag (we have a ferry line
Gdynia to Sweden, so it can be bought without serious problems).
Arka fans are "well-known" in Poland. They aren't polite ;-)
