The mayor of the Athenian southern suburb of Glyfada installed a huge Greek flag on the slopes of Hymettus overlooking the capital for the anniversary of the OXI Day.

The 800-sqaure meter 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 on a Facebook post.
