On March 25, 2021, Greeks celebrated 200 years since the declaration of their war for independence and the entire world celebrated with them.
The Greek Diaspora, numberings millions of people the world over, joined forces on March 25, 2021, and made their voices heard in celebration of Greece’s bicentennial. In every corner of the globe, iconic landmarks were illuminated in white and blue in honor of Greece, the Greek people and their struggle for independence.
From Vancouver and Los Angeles to Chicago, Toronto and Boston and from there to Johannesburg and Sydney, cities around the world lit up their most emblematic monuments in the colors of the Greek flag to honor the nation of Greece.
The struggle of the Greek people to free themselves 200 years ago has been a source of inspiration ever since. Today, in a time when collective and individual freedoms are under threat, the message of the Greek Bicentennial is paramount.
