Greek Patriotism


The flag in this picture is on the same hill as the Acropolis.  It's on the other side of the plateau, sitting on a steep drop off.  During World War II, the Nazi's took down the Greek flag that flew there and raised a Nazi flag.  Every night, a Greek patriot would scale the steep side of the mountain where the flag flew and replace the Nazi flag with the Greek flag until the occupation was over.

Don't you just love Greece a little more now?
