Zito H Ellada!

On March 25th 1821 Bishop Germanos of Patras raised the flag of revolution at the monastery of Agia Lavra near Kalavrita and the battle cry of "Freedom or Death" becomes the motto of the revolution. The date was auspicious as it is the Annunciation of the Theotokos, the day that the Archangel Gabriel announced to the Blessed Virgin Mary that she would bear a child.
