A statue of Theodoros Kolokotronis, the famous Greek hero of the 1821 Revolution, was illuminated with the Greek flag in the city of Nafplion.

The symbolic move was made to mark the beginning of the bicentennial celebrations since the Revolution of 1821.

The municipality of Nafplion, along with the Ministry of Environment, Culture, Sports and Tourism, had planned a big event to mark the special celebrations but they did not take place due to the current coronavirus lockdown in Greece.

Nevertheless, the statue still shone proudly blue and white, even if an audience wasn’t present.
