Manto Mavrogenous

Manto Mavrogenous was the Greek Heroine in the Greek War of Independence. She was very wealthy and put her wealth towards the revolution by buying guns and donating money towards needs in the military. One big expense that she covered were the six ships with 50 men on each. She put together those ships, and also covered all the expenses for each ship. I believe people adored her because she was women taking care of the men during the Greek War of Independence.

"I Galanolefki" ( The Blue and White )

( The Blue and White ) flag was adopted in 1822. This flag has 9 horizontal blue stripes alternating with white stripes. The White Cross represents Eastern Orthodox Christianity, which is the Greek Religions, and the nine stripes represents the syllables of the phrase "Freedom or Death", or just "Freedom".
