Polandball, also known as countryball (“zemlja-lopta”) is the infamous internet meme generated by users on Krautchan.net in the second half of 2009. The meme was manifested through a large number of user-drawn online comics in which the given country is presented in the form of spherical personas talking very bad English and mocking national stereotypes and international relations. This type of comic was called polandball (even in the case when Poland was not among the actors) and countryball (ie. The collective countryballs).
Polandball traces its roots from the ‘cyber-war’ in September 2009 between Polish Internet users and the rest of the world which took place on the site drawball.com. These sites, which offer virtual drawing screen, allow their customers to draw whatever they want, but also to draw over existing drawings of other users. On the Polish internet room, there was idea to draft a Polish flag over circular canvas on drawball.com and thousands of Poles managed to take cooperation canvas, coloring it in red and white with the words “POLSKA” in the middle. After coordination on 4chan, the drawing was later covered with a huge swastika by German members.
