Greek Independence Day

Dear clients and associates, dear friends,

Please be informed that on Monday, 25 March 2024, our offices will be closed due to a public holiday, Greek Independence Day.

With best regards,

The celebration of the Greek Revolution of 1821 -1829, also known as the Day of National Renascence (Ημέρα της Ελληνικής Ανεξαρτησίας), takes place in Greece, Cyprus and Greek diaspora centres on 25 March every year, coinciding with the Feast of the Annunciation. The day is a public holiday in Greece and Cyprus.

Interesting Facts about the Greek Independence day:

  1. The Greek War of Independence began formally on March 25, 1821, when Bishop Germanos of Patras raised the Greek flag at the Monastery of Agia Lavra and declared the start of the revolution against Ottoman rule.
  2. The date of March 25 was chosen not only for its religious significance but also for its symbolism of rebirth and renewal, aligning with the Annunciation when the Archangel Gabriel announced to the Virgin Mary that she would conceive Jesus Christ.
  3. The Greek Revolution of 1821 marked the beginning of the end of nearly four centuries of Ottoman rule over Greece.
  4. The struggle for independence lasted for nearly eight years, culminating in the establishment of the independent Kingdom of Greece in 1832.
  5. The Greek Revolution inspired other nationalist movements across Europe and contributed to the eventual decline of the Ottoman Empire.
  6. The iconic blue and white colours of the Greek flag are said to symbolise the colours of the sea and waves, as well as the purity and brightness of the Greek sky.
  7. March 25 is not only celebrated in Greece but also in various Greek communities around the world, where parades, cultural events, and traditional performances commemorate the historic day.
  8. The Greek independence day takes place in Greece, Cyprus and Greek diaspora centres
