The 2,500th anniversary of the Naval Battle of Salamis

The naval battle of Salamis is one of the most important historic landmarks around the world. It was then that the outnumbered Greeks mustered their spirit and intelligence, stood strong and defended not only their territory but also their civilization, their universe of values, and their world-view from the foreign invader. A universe of values for collective life and the democracy that they had started to shape and that they had to protect at all costs.

The strategic importance of the battle resembles the outcome of other battles that marked the flow of world history. It shows that coalitions can be impressive force multipliers, despite their often convoluted decision-making process. It is also a telling reminder of the capacity of the Hellenic nation to work miracles against the strongest enemies, despite its small size.

2500 years ago the Greek youth of Classical Antiquity proved worthy of their brave ancestors. The sacrifice of many of them at the time marked the birthday of Western Civilization whose attachment to Liberty, Democracy, Humanity, and Fair Play contrasts sharply with the Absolutism, Expansionism and Protectionism throughout history.

Today, on the 2,500 anniversary of this historic battle, Greece reminds the world of its role as European and universal civilization’s gatekeeper.
