Hellenic Post begins 2021 with a set of stamps marking the two hundredth anniversary of the 1821 Greek Revolution. In doing so, Hellenic Post also honours its own history, which is interwoven with that of the modern Greek state, and shares our national celebration with the rest of the world.

Entitled “GREECE 2021 – 200 Years After the Revolution”, the set comprises two stamps showing the logo of the official celebrations, as well as a host of associated products.

Hellenic Post’s involvement in this landmark anniversary was announced late last year during a video call between the Chairman of the Hellenic Post Board of Directors, Polychronis Griveas, and the President of the “Greece 2021” Committee, Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki. You can see the video call here.

 

Mr Griveas noted: “Modern Greece was created through dreams and endeavours that we remember today not as vague and remote events, but as sources of inspiration. And as for Hellenic Post, whose course runs parallel with that of Greece, the history of our country has always inspired us.” He added: Greek stamps will be commemorating the bicentennial of the Greek Revolution throughout 2021.”

For her part, Mrs Angelopoulos-Daskalaki welcomed the release of the “GREECE 2021 – 200 Years After the Revolution” set, expressing the hope that “these two beautiful stamps, created to the high standards that we always expect of Hellenic Post, will send a message around the world that 200 years after the Greek Revolution, 2021 is our year. The year of Greece.”
