Greece Flag

We carry authentic Greece Flags in both indoor and outdoor varieties. Our flags are proudly made in the United States from durable nylon and are printed with vibrant long-lasting inks. The Greece national flag is often displayed at embassies, outside of businesses associated with Greece, and at the homes of people who take great pride in their Greek heritage.

Our indoor flags are finished with a pole hem and your choice of with or without golden fringe. Gold fringe is the traditional way to display an indoor flag, however, some people choose without fringe for a simple and clean look that is also less expensive. If you are looking for a complete indoor presentation set, our Build Your Own Indoor International Flag Set program allows you to select a durable nylon indoor Greece Flag and choose between premium quality poles, bases, and ornaments, and tassel. For indoor applications, most buyers choose a 3ft. x 5ft. flag with an 8ft. pole, however, if you have a low ceiling, you may opt for a 7ft. pole, which is designed to work with drop ceilings. If you are looking for a very substantial international flag display, our 4ft. x 6ft. indoor flags can be paired with a 9ft. pole for our largest indoor display option.

Our outdoor international flags are finished with a canvas header and brass grommets and are offered in four sizes: 2ft. x 3ft., 3ft. x 5ft., 4ft. x 6ft., and 5ft. x 8ft., to fit any sized flagpole. Typically, outdoor flags are flown outside of government organizations, businesses, and institutions on in-ground and wall-mount flagpoles, however, some people also buy these flags to display their international pride at home. If you are looking for a wall-mount Greece flag set to display outside of your home, our Build Your Own Outdoor International Flag Set program will allow you to choose between premium quality 6ft. poles and brackets to display the Greece Flag on your front porch. Outdoor flags can also be displayed indoors on interior walls of your home with screws anchored in the wall to attach to the grommets.

In addition to the flags we offer for purchase, we maintain an archive of the audio and lyrics of the Greece National Anthem, historical information about the Greece flag, demographic data about Greece, and free high resolution images of the Greece flag for use in projects and on websites.

Regardless of your application, we are looking forward to working with you to provide the required flags, flagpoles, and hardware for your application. If you need assistance, please reach out to us by phone, email, or chat, and we will be happy to help.



History of the Greek Flag

The Greek Flag consists of nine horizontal blue and white bands and features a blue field with a white cross in the top left corner of the flag. The white cross in the corner symbolizes the primary religion in Greece, Greek Orthodox. The color white represents the clouds and the crest of the waves in the sea. The blue color is symbolic of the sky and the seas that surround Greece. The nine stripes represent the nine syllables of the Greek phrase that translates as "Freedom or Death." During the Hellenic Revolution and the battle for independence these words were shouted out by the fighters.

The blue stripes represent the Greek word for "freedom" as there are 5 blue lines and the Greek word has five syllables. It is also thought that the colors blue and white are used on the Greek flag as they were the colors of the uniform that the soldiers who fought in battle wore. Another myth or superstition according to the Greeks is that the color blue wards off all evil. The Greek flag is known as the "Galanolefki" which translates as "blue and white" and was adopted on March 15th, 1822.

Greece National Anthem

Hymn to Liberty

Listen

Lyrics

I know it's you from the edge
of the sword, the terrible one
I recognize you from the look
which with hardness surveys the land

drawn from the bones
of the Greeks, the sacred ones
and, valiant as first
hail, o hail, Liberty!
