A large Greek flag measuring 22 metres long is now waving proudly at the main port of the Greek island of Chios.
The flag was raised on Wednesday afternoon, with hundreds in attendance, to mark the 81st anniversary of OXI Day.
“When our national symbol is high, the souls of our ancestors rejoice and we are also proud,” the Mayor of Chios, Stamatis Karmantzis, said after the flag raising ceremony.
The flag mast was donated by the “Maria Tsakos” Foundation.
Immediately after the ceremony, the flag was placed at half-mast due to the day of national mourning declared for the death of KINAL leader, Fofi Gennimata.
