Greek Support for Nice: Flags at Half Mast, Buildings Lit With Colors of French Flag

To express solidarity for France in the aftermath of the attack, Greek flags on all public buildings in the country will fly at half-mast for three days from Saturday. The gesture is a sign of mourning and a display of support towards the French people. The City of Athens will be lit with the colors of the French flag after 9 p.m. on Monday in participation of worldwide mourning for the French victims.

Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos called on his secretary-general George Gennimatas to convey his condolences to the French Ambassador in Athens, Christophe Chantepy. The matter was also discussed during a meeting with Athens Archbishop Ieronymos at the presidential mansion expressing the Greek people’s support after Thursday’s shocking terror strike.
