The Greek flag, also called the galanolefki
or the kianolefki
, the “blue-white,” was adopted in 1978, although the colors and general pattern have been in use since 1822. The colors are interpreted in many ways and may represent the Greek sky and sea or traditional colors of Greek clothes. The cross in the canton represents Eastern Orthodox Christianity. The 9 stripes represent each letter of the Greek word for freedom. They can also be tied to the 9 muses.
