Comparison of polarization, intensity and orientation of polarization with coronal magnetic fields, calculated under potential approximation, was carried out for the green-line corona observed during the July 11, 1991 solar eclipse. The relationships revealed between these quantities indicate undoubted influence of the magnetic fields on the origin of polarization in this emission line.
