1 year ago

Final preparations are underway for the events commemorating the 200th anniversary of the 1821 Greek Revolution.

On Thursday, the Greek Independence military parade will take place in Athens in front of a number of foreign dignitaries.

One of the most talked about decorations are the 200 flags in Syntagma Square which surround a special “1821” and “2021” garden.

Giant flags have already been waving in many parts of the country since last week.

The largest Greek flag – four times larger than the one that was placed on October 28 – is waving at the highest point of Mount Hymettus.
