Pavlopoulos at presentation of series of stamps dedicated to the’150 years of Presidential Guard’

President of Republic Prokopios Pavlopoulos on Wednesday attended a special event held to mark the 150th year anniversary since the foundation of the Presidential Guard, during which there was a presentation of a commemorative series of stamps “150 years Presidential Guard” issued by the Hellenic Post.

During his speech, Pavlopoulos said that he was honoured that, as President, he had the opportunity to pay tribute to the Presidential Guard, which for 150 consecutive years has fought its own battle alongside the struggles of the nation and the people.

Finally, he thanked the Hellenic Post because for its initiative that provided an opportunity for the valour, gallantry and heroism of the Presidential Guard to be depicted on the stamps. “Moreover, the stamps will travel and through these, the pictures of the Evzones (Presidential Guard) will travel all over the world,” he said.
