Flag History
The flag flown by Greece is in the same colors as the one which was raised following independence from the Ottoman Empire in the early 19th century. The cross in the canton represents the Greek faith while the blue stands for the sea and sky. White reflects the purity of the Greek independence struggle and the nine stripes signify the nine syllables in the cry "Freedom or Death", uttered during the Greek War of Independence.

Greece National Anthem

Hymn to Liberty

Listen

Lyrics

I know it's you from the edge
of the sword, the terrible one
I recognize you from the look
which with hardness surveys the land

drawn from the bones
of the Greeks, the sacred ones
and, valiant as first
hail, o hail, Liberty!
