The Ethnic Heritage of 1821, two centuries after the Revolution, remains strong- as reported by Mrs. Katerina Sakellaropoulou, President of the Hellenic Republic -and the fundamental values and principals of the Constitution have been transformed into our democratic experience. Democracy and the rule of law are ingrained in the conscience of all of us”.
This year is symbolic for Greece as it marks 200 years since the beginning of the Revolution for the acquisition of freedom and independence of the Greek state. We respect our history, we envision our future and we continue with the same virtues and the same values, those we inherited from our glorious ancestors!
