The flag of Greece, which is popularly referred to as the "sky-blue-white" or the "blue-white," is based on nine alternating horizontal stripes of blue and white. The blue canton in the upper corner with a white cross symbolizes Eastern Orthodox Christianity. Popular tradition maintains that the nine stripes represent the nine syllables of the phrase "Ελευθερία ή Θάνατος" ("Freedom or Death"). The nine stripes are also said to represent the letters of the word "freedom" (Greek: ελευθερία) or the nine Muses, the goddesses of art and civilization. Blue and white represent the colors of the Greek sky and sea. If your family is Greek, this is a perfect piece of art!
