200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821

 Greece celebrates the 200 years since the beginning of the Greek War of Independence of 1821 against the Ottoman Empire which led to its modern state.
An impressive military parade for the bicentennial of theGreek Revolution of 1821 was held in Athens, a ceremony that was off limits to the public due to coronavirus restrictions. The public was able to watch only through live television coverage or online streaming.
Because of the historic significance of this year’s Greek Independence Day parade, some squads are wearing traditional costumes from different regions of the Greek mainland and the islands, while actual historical artifacts — many of which have not been exhibited before, were also featured in the parade.
