The war led to the formation of modern Greece. The revolution is celebrated by Greeks around the world as independence day on 25 March.

A big festival, called Miaoulia, takes place in Hydra every year the last weekend of June, to honor Admiral Miaoulis, a most important man of the Greek Revolution against the Ottomans in 1821.
