An employee at the Presidential Guard's army camp repairs a waistcoat which is part of the guards' uniform...
An employee at the Presidential Guard's army camp repairs a waistcoat which is part of the guards' uniform in central Athens November 22, 2013. Known in Greece as Evzones, the Presidential Guards stand still outside parliament even as violent clashes break out between police and protesters, conjuring an image of stoicism in a country struggling to pull itself out of a crisis. The role of the Presidential Guard, which was founded in 1868, is purely ceremonial, but the Evzones are drawn from the Greek army. They wear a traditional uniform, which includes a pair of heavy, red-leather clogs with black tassels, and a white kilt with 400 pleats, one for each year the country was under the Ottoman occupation up to 1821. They are tasked with raising and lowering the Greek flag, on the top of the Acropolis hill. Picture taken November 22, 2013. REUTERS/John Kolesidis (GREECE - Tags: MILITARY TRAVEL SOCIETY)
