Photographer's Note

It's one of the two National Holidays of Greece today, it's also a celebration of the Greek flag. I remembered I had taken a couple of pictures featuring the flag with characterisitic islandscapes in the background, during my short trips through the Dodecanese last summer.

I was standing on the deck of the catamaran next to many people taking pictures and bidding farewell to Symi (I heard a couple of foreign passengers doing so literally), when I noticed that the flag had unfolded completely and looked so bright against the morning light.

The Greek flag has the nickname "Blue-and-White". I read on Wikipedia once that no precise definition of the "Greek-flag-blue" has been established so far.

Thank you for visiting
