Uhlans (inPolish: "Ułan"; "Ulan" inGerman) were Polish lightcavalry armed with lances,sabres andpistols. The title was later used by lancer regiments in thePrussian andAustrian armies.
Uhlans typically wore a double-breasted jacket (kurta) with a coloured panel (plastron) at the front, a coloured sash, and a square-topped Polish lancer cap (czapka) also spelt chapka, chapska and schapska. This cap or cavalry helmet was derived from a traditional design of Polish cap, made more formal and stylised for military use.
Their lances usually had small swallow-tailed flags (known as the lance pennon) just below the spearhead.
