National Anniversary of March 25, 1821

March 28, 2023

With feelings of national pride, Neapolis University Pafos honors with splendor the anniversary of March 25, 1821 and the liberation of Greece from the Ottomans. On the day of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary, Greeks reminisce and honour these epic moments with the message of national rebirth.

Based on the principles of freedom and justice, the Greek revolution is a significant stage in the development of modern history of Hellenism and a legacy for the following generations. The uprising of the enslaved Greeks was followed by a spiritual renaissance. By the middle of the 18th century, Greek language developed in the wider area, reaching even central Europe.

The Revolution of 1821 highlighted the virtues of the Greek nation and marked the course of it. Men and women from all social groups, with very little material means but with high patriotism and mental fortitude, took up the liberation struggle on land and sea. With unparalleled patriotic devotion and self-sacrifice, they defied even death. Τhe motto of the Revolution was the phrase “liberty or death”.

Neapolis University Pafos, in the context of the celebrations of the 1821 National Anniversary, participated in the events organized by the Municipality of Pafos with the student Parade on Saturday on Griva Digeni Avenue. Our students contributed to the maximum in the national events but mainly with their participation in this year’s national parade. The Student Affairs and International student support office, would like to thank the Student Council (EFOPAN), all our students and our colleague, Mr. Christos Sofroniou, the responsible operator of our sports centre, for the rehearsals that preceded and for our perfect cooperation.
