In early XVII Century a terrible epidemic overwhelmed the town. It run its course very quickly and the residents credited the God for taking care of them, hence the appearance of the Eye of Providence in the symbol of the town.
Then, in 1920, the onslaught of the the Bolshevik armies was stopped at the outskirts of Radzymin by the sheer heroics of the undermanned Polish Army and civilian volunteers,thus, saving Poland and entire Europe from being overtaken by the Red Terror. Once again, the people of Radzymin and all Poles, were convinced
of the divine intervention of the Allmighty, of the Eye of Providence watching over them.
In addition, the day of the victorious battle was also a day of the Ascent of Virgin Mary, holiday dear to all Poles (August 15). The battle itself acquired the name of "The Miracle on Vistula" and, in 1936, the Ministry of Internal Affairs confirmed officially the Eye of Providence as a Coat of Arms of Radzymin, saved twice by the Grace of the Almighty.
