“Greece 2021” Committee Official Memorabilia and Collectibles Now Available for Purchase

January 15, 2021

ΑΤΗΕΝS — The 'Greece 2021' Committee on Friday announced the commercial distribution of its official line of licenced commemorative and collectible products, bearing its logo, which are now available for purchase. The announcement was made together with "Diakakis Imports S.A", which was declared official exclusive Licensee of the "stationery-school supplies" category in a tender organised by the Committee.

The authentic souvenirs, including school supplies, stationery, bags, water canteens, mugs, diaries, and more, decorated with the Committee's "Greece 2021" designs and logos, aim to further promote the celebration and the programmed anniversary events for the bicentennial of the 1821 War of Independence that led to the establishment of the modern Greek state. Some also have notable quotes made by the heroic figures that fought in the Greek Revolution, such as Theodoros Kolokotronis.

The head of the company, Irene Diakaki, said it was an "opportunity to contribute in this way to promoting and further publicising an important anniversary for Greece."

Committee 2021 President Angela Angelopoulos-Daskalaki said that these souvenirs will "promote the messages of the 200-year anniversary since the Revolution, a unique anniversary for Greek men and women, by depicting the symbols and heroes of the Greek Revolution but also through phrases that highlight values, such as resilience and a fighting spirit, that accompanied the course of modern Greece."

Apart from their commemorative role, she added, buying these products was yet another way to participate in the mood of the great Greek anniversary, to spread and promote it and make it memorable for all, both young and old.

"It is also one of the ways in which the Committee hopes to implement even more anniversary activities and events, since it is not receiving state funding. The share of revenue, therefore, that belongs to the Committee from their sale will be spent to finance events and the more revenue we have, the more events will be held," Angelopoulos-Daskalaki said.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
