At the beginning of Balkan War (October 1912 ) the habitants of Siatista did not wait the arrival of Greek Army. They decided themselves to hoist the flag of Liberty on October 12th.

And they enjoyed the ceremony of Liberation a week later in the Prophet Elias’ church.

        Turks, nonetheless, tried to reconquer the town of Siatista on the 4th of November, unsuccessfully.

        When, finally, the Greek Army arrived, colonel N. Kladas reported officially:

Our  Army just confirms Siatista’s  Liberation, a result of action of its habitants.
