200 Years since the Revolution of 1821 - Greece 2021
The planning of the celebrations for the 200 years since 1821 begins in Nafplio, the first capital of the Independent Greek State.
In preparation for the 200 years' Anniversary celebrations, the “Greece 2021” Committee's Chairwoman Mrs. Gianna Angelopoulos visits cities of historic importance for the Greek Revolution and on Friday, February 14th 2020 she begins the campaign with her first visit and contacts in Nafplio.
The Mayor of Nafplio Mr. Dimitris Kostouros welcomes Mrs. Angelopoulos to the Town Hall and then an open event follows in the first House of Parliament (Vouleftiko). There, Mrs. Angelopoulos presented the campaign's label and referred to the objectives of the “Greece 2021” Committee, as well as also presented the framework of cooperation between the Municipality of Nafplio and the Committee.
The purpose of the “Greece 2021” Committee is to make the actions and events that will mark the Anniversary of the 1821 Greek Revolution not only an occasion for fancy celebrations, but also an opportunity to present Greece as a modern and democratic European state and to lay down our vision for the Greece of tomorrow.
The “Greece 2021” sign (logo) seeks to depict the turbulent journey of the Greek state, with its successes and all difficult times marking it, but also to highlight the need to "go forward" with the roads that open in the future.

Worth to see
At a time, when our minds in Greece are concerned with serious issues, which make all of us restless and cause us unpleasant thoughts, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, two people who have strong ties with our country, send us one message of optimism. They invite everyone to visit the website of the “Greece 2021” Committee and encourage anyone interested to submit proposals for activities and events, that will take place on the occasion of 200 years since the Greek Revolution of 1821.
The course of Greece in these 200 years is the best proof, that we are destined to even resolve the problems we are facing today. The two famous actors, of whom one is Greek by blood and the other by choice, remind us of that in the best way!
