The 25th of March is one of our two National Days. On this day we honor the heroes of the revolution of 1821. Those heroes who gave their lives so that our country is a free country.
From 29 May 1453, after the fall of Constantinople, and for four centuries the Greeks lived under Turkish occupation. Many of the Greeks of the time she could not bear the Turks and had taken refuge in the mountains. These were the leaders of the revolution.
On March 25, 1821 in the Maximum single Lavra in Kalavryta, Bishop Germanos of Patras Veterans, raised the banner of revolt. Then officially began the Greek Revolution, which led after many struggles and sacrifices, liberalization and recognition of the Greek state in 1830 with the Treaty of London. Treaty signed on 22 January 1830 in England, France and Russia.
Two years later, on August 14, 1832, defined the borders of Greece to reach the imaginary line that ends Pagasitikos and Amvrakikos bay. In December of that year accepted the Ottoman Empire that decision and then start the process of new Greek state.
The celebration of March 25 as a national holiday was established by Decree 980, on March 15, 1838. That same year became the first official celebration.
