The head of the "Greece 2021" committee on the bicentennial of the declaration of the Greek War of Independence (1821), Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki, presented on Friday the logo of the committee.
The logo shows a ribbon forming the number "2" flowing through the "1", standing for the -21 suffix of 1821-20121.
In a video filmed at the Acropolis Museum, Angelopoulos-Daskalaki said the anniversary "is not simply history, but a great opportunity to escape daily reality, celebrate – as Greeks know best – and to remember where we started from; to realize where we stand and decide where we want to go."
She noted that although "we each have different memories, lives and dreams, all of us make up Greece."
