SYDNEY – To commemorate the bicentennial of the beginning of the Greek War of Independence in 1821, Australian Post, in collaboration with the Holy Archdiocese of Australia, has issued a series of anniversary stamps.

The series comprises four stamps, which depict four heroic clergy of the Orthodox Church, who fought for the freedom of the Hellenic homeland.

The faces depicted on the stamps are portraits created by the Greek artist Angela Konstantinopoulos, for this purpose.

The images include: Patriarch Gregory V: ethnomartyr and saint of the Orthodox Church, Metropolitan Palaion Patron Germanos, Bishop Isaiah of Salona, and Archimandrite Grigorios Dikaios-Flessas (Papaflessas).
