Logo’s Etymology for Hotel Gi Theon
From historical sources we know that the star of sixteen rays was the emblem of the Macedonian Phalanx led by Philip II and Alexander the Great. However, the selection of the emblem were not random. The star symbolizes the Twelve Greeks Gods and the 4 elements of nature. Each radius represents a god and the four cardinal points, represent fire, water, earth and air.
Our logo consists of 12 rays such as the Gods of Greek Pantheon . In the center stands the mask of Medusa who according to Greek mythology was a beautiful priestess of Athena, where Poseidon raped her into the sacred temple of Athena . The Goddess , enraged by the fact he could not come into conflict with Neptune (Poseidon ), transformed her into a hateful monster , which instead of hair she had snakes . She was so ugly and whoever looked at her face, turned into stone . In the spiritual tradition of the ancient Greeks , Medusa affiliated in any way with the fear that causes people the ‘ unknown ‘ , the totally different. Important references lead us to the view that the Medusa had a significant part in the worship of the ancient Greeks . She protected Greeks from the evil eye and negative energy , and this is confirmed by the archaeological finds unearthed in recent years .
