St Patrick’s Day is perhaps the most famous national day in March but there are several others. For example Greece celebrates its Independence Day on March 25th. This commemorates the Greek War of Independence waged between 1821 and 1832 against the Ottoman Empire, in which independence lost at the fall of Constantinople in 1453 was regained. Despite the current austerity measures Greeks will no doubt proudly celebrate this event later in the month of March. You can share their pride while wearing a customized Greek Flag and Map T-Shirt.

If you are Estonian you might be observing Valentine’s Day today but you’ll also be looking forward to celebrate Independence Day in 10 days time. This commemorates the country’s declaration of independence, which occurred during World War I as German troops drove out Russian troops. Actual independence was only consolidated in 1920, lasted until World War II and was subsequently regained in 1991. You may like to prepare to celebrate Estonian independence with a customized Estonia Flag and Map T-shirt.
