"OXI" The Loudest Message in World History

"OXI" the loudest message in World history - 28 October 1940 

OXI Day 80 Years Later

«Ελληνίδες, Έλληνες. Από την Ορεστιάδα μέχρι τη Γαύδο και από τους Οθωνούς μέχρι το Καστελόριζο, να θυμάστε το πιο λακωνικό και ηχηρό μήνυμα της παγκόσμιας ιστορίας αποτελείται από δύο συλλαβές, ΟΧΙ. Ένα μήνυμα που θυμίζει σε όλους ότι η Δημοκρατία και η Ελευθερία είναι ιδεώδη ακατάλυτα που θα θριαμβεύουν όσο υπάρχουν αθάνατες ελληνικές ψυχές.
Ψυχές τολμηρές πέρα από τις δυνάμεις τους, ριψοκίνδυνες εν γνώσει τους και αισιόδοξες στις δυσκολίες. Χρόνια πολλά, Ελλάδα!»

"Hellenes. From Orestiada to Gavdos, from the Othonous to Kastellorizo, remember - the loudest and shortest message in world history consists of just two syllables, "ΟΧΙ" ΝΟ!. A message that reminds the world that Democracy and Freedom are indestructible ideals that will always triumph as long as the immortal Greek spirit exists. Courageous spirits bold beyond their means, knowingly taking risks, and optimistic in adversity. Xronia Polla, Hellas! "

Today's awesome #OXIDay message comes from one of our wonderful Hellenic Air Force pilots from the cockpit of his F16 Zeus as he flew over Athens during the 80th Anniversary Celebrations earlier today. Watch and listen to his inspiring message below.

Note: Sadly #Covid19 numbers in Greece meant none of the usual parades could be held around the country.

Beautifully optimistic, brilliantly simple, classic yet modern this performance by young and old alike

The heroes and heroines of the Greek Revolution

Filmed in the magnificent Kallimarmaro Stadium, purpose built for the 1st Modern Olympics in 1896, Dionysis Savvopoulos' wonderful song is the theme for this video clip for Greece 2021
