Canberra to Celebrate Greek Independence Day


Canberra landmarks including Telstra Tower, Questacon and the Carillon will light up tonight in the blue and white of the Greek flag to celebrate Greek Independence Day.

Disappointingly the National Library won’t be joining the display despite its significant Greek design and use of white marble from outside Athens.

This year’s Greek Independence Day marks 200 years since the 1821 start of the War of Independence, when Greece separated from the Ottoman Empire.
