I found something about Lechia Gdansk:
Full name: KS (Klub Sportowy) Lechia Gdańsk
Date of establishment: 1945
Actual coach: Tadeusz Malolepszy
Successes: Cup of Poland 1983, Junior Champion 1957
Actually Lechia plays in Third League - Northern Group
Official club flag is very similar to logo.
Image based on this webpage; it is interesting that the crosses are yellow - on Gdansk Coat of Arms they are white

The name Lechia is not derived from Lech Walesa, but from the legendary
father of the nation - Lech. That's why the Turks (and the Armenians) call
Poland - Lechistan(Lekistan).
There were three brothers traveling together from the steppes of the Ukraine toward the West -Lech, Rus and Czech. As they camped for the night somewhere between Vistula and Oder, admiring beautifull sunset, Lech spotted white eagle rising against red sky, took a look around the countryside and said something like: "That's it! I am staying over here, and the white eagle on the red shall be my sign!"
And it was the beginning of Poland-Lechistan. Rus and Czech didn't share Lech's admiration for this particular real estate and split in the morning - Czech went south in search of the greener pastures and Rus became nostalgic for the Ukrainian steppes.
That's roughly the story behind the name Lechia
