‘Greece 2021’ committee on Greek War of Independence centennial reveals logo

·

Head of the “Greece 2021” committee on the bicentennial of the declaration of the Greek War of Independence (1821) Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki presented the logo of the committee on Friday.

The logo shows a ribbon forming the number ‘2’ flowing through the ‘1’, standing for the -21 suffix of 1821-2021.

In a video filmed at the Acropolis Museum, committee chairman Angelopoulos-Daskalaki said the anniversary “is not simply history, but a great opportunity to escape daily reality, celebrate – as Greeks know best – and to remember where we started from; to realize where we stand and decide where we want to go.”

She noted that although “we each have different memories, lives and dreams, all of us make up Greece.”
