Arcadia, My Arcadia

Though not a sociological study but only a work of fiction, Arcadia, My Arcadia tells the inspirational story of real people and their life. In this story lies the heart and soul of Arcadia. It is a personal memory of life, mostly fond but at times merciless. It is a portrait of life in Arcadia, and perhaps in all of the Greek countryside, during the stone years of the 1940s and the hopeful decade that followed, when villagers began to emigrate once again in hopes of a better life elsewhere.

A Dying Man's Last Wish - Koulourakia!

An elderly Greek man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite Greek cookies, koulourakia, wafting up the stairs. Gathering his remaining strength, he lifted himself from the bed.

Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands he crawled downstairs. With labored breath, he leaned against the doorframe, gazing into the kitchen. ...

My father’s family comes from the island of Kythera, a small island located between the western tip of Crete and the ...

Flag of the Byzantine Empire under the Palaeologian dynasty and today the flag of Mount Athos.

Double Headed Eagle and Greek Iconology. Overview from Wikepedia

It may seem surprising that one of the most recognizable (other than the cross) and beloved Greek symbols, the double-headed eagle, is not a part of the modern Greek flag or coat of arms (although it is officially used by the Greek Army, by the church of Greece, and was incorporated in the Greek coat of arms between 1925 and 1926).
