What a sight!
Melbourne, which is home to the largest Greek population outside of Greece, commemorated the Bicentennial of the 1821 Greek Revolution.
Here are some shots of buildings and landmarks around Melbourne illuminated in the colours of the Greek flag blue, captured by GCT and Constantly Flashing Photography–
Earlier in the week, the heart of the historic Lonsdale Street Greek precinct in Melbourne’s CBD, the Greek Centre, the Greek Community’s of Melbourne’s HQ turned blue.
“It’s symbolic, but it is also important that we mark our bicentenary in every way we can. Our committees and staff have been exhaustive in preparing a series of events that will mark the bicentenary and the events to date have surpassed every expectation. We look forward to celebrating not only the next few days, but the whole of the year with our fellow Hellenes and Philhellenes,” said Greek Community president, Bill Papastergiadis.
The Greek Centre will be lit up for the whole of this auspicious week as a part of the Community’s 200 year program.
