The story behind
The Story Behind
Elias Kafouros commemorates the bicentenary of his country’s independence and celebrates the courage of his compatriots. His design unfolds like a flag and each letter of the Greek word for freedom is written in a characteristic landscape of the country’s three regions:
Continental Greece, the Peloponnese, and the islands of the Aegean sea.
Mountainside houses, bell towers, ancient colonnades, bridges, and terraces flower at the heart of luxurious nature. A lake is superimposed at the center of the letter “θ”, taking the shape of a blue eye – a symbol the Greeks see as warding off bad luck. Here, it symbolizes citizens’ open gaze regarding their cultural, social and human heritage. Resolutely turned towards the future.
