    It has been 200 years since the Greek Revolution is started. True to our commitment for the struggle our forefathers to reach freedom, we show respect and appreciation to them by holding a Flag Raising Ceremony at Federation Square right on the date, 25th March 2021.

    Our Australian compatriots need to understand that Greece as a modern nation has been around only about 200 years despite the thousands of years of history, of a civilization that has given so much to the rest of the world. To name but a few of the offerings they are:

    • Olympic Games
    • Philosophy
    • Democracy
    • Mathematics
    • Medicine
    • Arts and Theatrical Performance
    • Astronomy
    • and so much more

    Like last year the 8 Greek flags that came on special delivery from Athens, are to be up on the Federation Square masts along Swanston Street.

    Students will sing the national anthem of Greece and Australia and some VIPs will be present.
