The upcoming celebration of the 200 years since the outbreak of the Greek Revolution of 1821 and the War of Independence will be a key historical event: it is both an occasion to recognize the struggles and sacrifices of our people while it also requires us to think on the present-day position of our country and its future.
The bicentennial requires a coordinated approach to the organization of related events, backed by teamwork and collaboration. All of us have a historic and moral duty to contribute to this celebration, with its events in Greece and abroad based on three themes: History, Creation, and Evolution.
On the 25th of March 2021 the military parade, which marks the anniversary of the beginning of Greece’s War of Independence from Ottoman rule in 1821, will be held in the center of Athens in front of the Parliament. Due to the pandemic spectators will not be allowed and only political officials will attend it, along with foreign dignitaries.
It is worth noting that on March 25th, the Greek Orthodox Church celebrates also the “Annunciation of Virgin Mary”
