No, Nein, Nyet, Non, Yok, Όχι.

On the 28th of October 1940, The Greek dictator Metaxas gave his answer to Mussolini (and thus in effect to Hitler) who had asked him if Greece would like to join what was known as ‘The Axis’. His answer was Όχι. And in case of any doubt, that is the Greek word for ‘NO’. Ever since, on that day throughout the country and indeed everywhere they are to be found, Greeks celebrate their independence, their refusal to let other countries tell them what to do.

Just thought you might like to know.
