What aspect of modern Greek culture is actually 'Greek'

Postby carolgreen873 » Mon Sep 17, 2012 10:46 pm

NATIONAL HEROES - Multicultural (most of modern Greece's national heros are on record as being a mixture of Albanians, Vlachs, English, Germans, Grkoman and many others).

ROYAL FAMILY - German (Descended from the royal house of Bavaria).

NATIONAL FLAG- German (based on various old versions of the flag of Bavaria).

NATIONAL ANTHEM - Italian (written by Niccoló Calichiopulo Manzaro, an Italian resident living in Corfu).

NATIONAL DRESS - Albanian (we know where the Fustanella comes from right).

NATIONAL MUSIC - Turkish (Buzukglu, Rembetiku are forms of Anatolian peasant music).

NATIONAL CUISINE - Turkish (Doner Kebab, Tzatziki, Taramasalat, Baklava etc, etc, etc).
