In early 1821, when Papaflessas was calling for Greeks to rebels, some patriots, among them Vogorody Polychroniades and clonares, obtained arms and volunteers from Haiti. Led by Panayotti, they landed on the island of Idhra to fight Turkish occupiers. In 1935, Princess Marina of Greece visited Haiti to express her country’s gratitude for Haiti’s contribution against Turkish domination.
