The thing about this is, I guarantee 100% that if they succeed in removing the cross from the Greek flag, some kind of exception will be made for the crescent moon and star perhaps claiming that it isn’t really a religious symbol or some other such nonsense as they do everywhere else. My favorite example of course is this one where Ottawa City Council allowed a mosque to be built with no parking even though the nearby church had to obey city bylaws and provide X number of parking spots per seat. Why? Because in mosques they sit on the floor and so they don’t really use seats and as a consequences, don’t need parking.
That actually did happen

On March 25, on the occasion of the Greek Independence Day Parade, the “new” Greek flags which fluttered in the wind in many Greek cities, appeared with only blue and white stripes, without the cross symbol of Christianity.
In the past few months, there have been reports in the Greek media that the European Union has been seriously discussing the possibility of abolishing religious symbols from six out of 27 EU countries that have the cross symbol on their flags: Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Great Britain, Malta and Greece.
Established during the Greek War of Independence against the Ottoman Empire, the colors of the Greek flag symbolize the sea that surrounds the country (blue) and the purity of the fighters’ cause (white).
