Rogatywka is a generic term for an asymmetrical cap in Poland. It refers to a combination of a Peaked cap and the four-pointed cap. As the name suggests, the four-pointed cap has a four-pointed crown; the Peaked cap has a slanted crown that is raised at front and gradually declines towards the back; further, it has a short, stiff visor. The Rogatywka has all these features combined.

Some variant of Rogatywka has been a part of the Polis army uniform from time to time. There are broadly two variants, the soft one that was used by the Polish army before WWII and was withdrawn in 1990; the hard one, which is still in use.

Rogatywka has different colors that convey the soldier’s ranks.
