Review. Katsehamos and the Great Idea.

Peter Prineas, as an Australian of Kytherian Greek ancestry, has written Katsehamos and the Great Idea to tell the story of his ancestors’ migrations in the early 1900s' from Kythera in Greece to the United States, and subsequently to Australia. He integrates his family members into the bigger picture of Kytherian migrations, their involvement in the many wars during the early to mid-1900s which involved both Greeks at home and abroad, and the Greek focus on the great idea. His story goes on to ...

A Review

I have just read a book that fits neatly into that nexus where man meets history. Peter Prineas’ Katsehamos and the Great Idea tells a tale of struggle, courage, stoicism, doggedness and pride which is profoundly recognizable to the children of the Greek Diaspora, echoing in the secret part of our soul, to remind us of who we are; where we come from. ...

A Flag for Kythera. Proposal 3. Utilising the shell from which Aphrodite emerged into the world.

[[picture:"Kythera Shell Flag.jpg" ID:8950]]

[This is a work in progress. A 7-piece shell form (think the Shell petroleum logo) - in "clay yellow" - is to be placed in the centre (blue) circle

I have yet to devise a 7 piece shell icon - with which I am satisfied].

The shell metaphorically signifies the womb of Gaia (the world) - and the emergence of the female principle into the world (ie Aphrodite) - which allows for the emergence of humanity.

A Flag for Kythera. Proposal 1. Proposal utilising one of (wo)mankind's most ancient, primal and powerful symbols.

[[picture:"Kythera Flag FINAL.jpg" ID:15674]]

The original symbol for Aphrodite - Venus (Venus is the Romanised version of Kythera's Aphrodite).

To appreciate the power and primal nature of this symbol - go to:

Symbols.com Online Encyclopaedia of Western signs and ideograms

http://www.symbols.com/encyclopedia/41a/41a7.html

This is also the symbol used by astronomers to designate the planet Venus (Aphrodite).
