Greek Flag on Prominent Display Above Toronto City Hall for Battle of Crete Commemoration


Members of the Cretan Association of Toronto, led by their president, Toronto businessman Tony Lourakis, raised the Greek flag high above that city’s iconic City Hall at a commemoration ceremony for the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Crete.

The event was held in collaboration with the Greek Community of Toronto and Toronto City Councillor Mary Fragedakis.

Lourakis told The Pappas Post that “It’s imperative that we continue to share these stories and keep alive the struggles of the previous generation.”
