Η Ελληνική Σημαία coloring page

This Greek Flag drawing was created especially for the Time for Greek School blog by a very talented young lady, Anthe Mitrakos. Last March, Anthe and her sister Vasiliki established the Ariston Foundation.  The Ariston Foundation's mission is to award, through merit-based scholarships, individuals of Greek descent exemplifying academic excellence;  to organize special events; and to fund activities and projects celebrating the Hellenic language and culture.  The Mitrakos sisters also publish the new Portes Magazine that celebrates the
 "Best of Everything Greek". 
Like Portes on Facebook for updates on the upcoming edition of the magazine.
