The Bank of Greece, Greece's Central Bank, has released its annual list of official non-working public holidays in Greece for the calendar year 2015.

As per custom (2013-06-23, 2013-04-23, 2012-07-28, 2011-07-25, 2010-06-25, 2009-06-30 and 2008-07-21), the aforementioned list omits public holidays that fall on a Saturday or Sunday, and which are not compensated under Greek labour law.

In addition, the aforementioned announcement specifies that "the observance of Friday, May 1st, 2015 as a holiday by the Bank of Greece will be subject to a decision by the Minister of Labour, Social Security and Welfare declaring the said date a public holiday", this not being a pure formality, as the Greek government has, on past occasions (2013-04-24), moved the date of the May 1st annual Greek public holiday.
