Oxi Day, spelled “Ohi” or “Ochi”, and pronounced “oy-hee”, means “no” in Greek. It celebrates October 28, 1940 when the Greek Prime Minister, Ioannis Metaxas, said “NO!!!” to Benito Mussolini’s ultimatum that Greece allow Axis forces to occupy specific Greek territory. This marks the beginning of World War II for the Greek people, who really were a bit upset about the thought of being invaded.
So, every year, on October 28, Greeks everywhere celebrate. My own grandfather, who came to the USA in 1912 and was long an American citizen in 1940, always celebrated Oxi Day with his friends. Think of it as Cinco de Mayo for the Greeks, but with baklava instead of chirros.
Most of my flag design shops have an extensive section with Greek designs. Here are links to them:
And here is a sample of one design from each shop:
