Greece National Anthem

Greece National Anthem
Hymn to Liberty

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!

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.
