Thessaloniki Gets Liberated From the Ottomans!

This illustration shows the 1912 Flag of Liberation of Thessaloniki from the Ottomans.

I created the flag to honour the friendly country of France and the President of the French Republic, President Nicholas Sarkozy, whose origins are from Thessaloniki.

President Sarkozy knows that if Paris were to host the Olympic Games, I would embroider the Eiffel Tower and offer it to him as a gift.

I am also proud to display here a letter that I received from the Chief of Cabinet of the President of the Republic of France.

The Olympic Games truly is a global event that unites all the nations in friendship and fair competition.
