The mayor of the southern Athenian suburb of Glyfada installed a huge Greek flag on the slopes of Mount Hymettus, overlooking the capital city, for the celebration of the Greek national holiday of OXI Day.
The 800-sqaure meter (8,611 square foot) flag can be seen from most parts of southern Athens.
“With pride, up there on Mount Hymettus we put the Greek flag today! Above the small church of Prophet Elias where it is visible from everywhere. It is a tribute to the Greeks who sacrificed themselves in the ’40s, defending our homeland,” Mayor Giorgos Papanikolaou said in a Facebook post.
