Greek Flag T-Shirt - The galanolefki, the "blue and white" flying proudly over a map of Greece. There is little concensus about the origin of the flag. It seems to have been adopted in 1822 without a whole lot of discussion. The nine stripes are sometimes said to represent the syllables in Ελευθερία ή Θάνατος the Greek translation of the phrase "freedom or death," or the nine letters in the Greek word for "freedom." They also might represent the nine muses of ancient Greek mythology. Whatever they symbolize, you'll love showing your Greek heritage in this Greece flag t-shirt.
