The Greek national flag is made of nine alternating blue and white stripes. The flag also features a blue canton (square on the upper left corner of the flag) with a white cross on it. The origin of the flag design is unclear and there are several legends about the significance of the nine stripes. Two of the main ones claim that the stripes represent the syllables in the country’s motto while another legend dictates that the 9 stripes signify 9 Goddesses. The Greek flag’s colors, blue and white, are intricately weaved in to Greek culture throughout the years. These two colors represent the sky and the sea both of which play a large role in Greek Mythology and rich cultural heritage. The flag design was first adopted in 1978 but the blue and white stripe design have been used on flags since the 19th century.
