By Susan Sherren 3/25/21 6:21PM On March 25, 1821, Greece officially declared its independence from the Ottoman Empire. The event is celebrated annually on March 25 around the globe, especially in Greek Diaspora. Many blue and white Greek flags will be flown to honor the event. The break from the Ottoman Empire was one of the first national revolutions in Europe. Hellenic groups will donn the blue and white to celebrate the bicentennial event. Couture Trips would like to join in the celebrations by presenting our own tribute to Greek independence.
