ATHENS (Αθήνα)

Athenslogo.jpg

Athens does not use arms, but the above logo based on the national arms and with the head of the Goddess Athena after whom the city is named.

Previously the arms of the city were often shown with the goddess dressed as a warrior or just the head of the goddess, but I am not sure whether these have ever been officially granted or adopted.
