HPA Logo

The  Hellenic Pammachon Alliance logo is highly symbolic.  The logo itself represents the organization and  our cultural martial education platform of Pammachon (Πάμμαχον)

A blue Greek key (Μαίανδρος), corresponding to the darker blue utilized in a version of the Hellenic flag,  adorns the outer circle of the logo.  A brief history of the Greek key can be found below:

The inner artwork was created with a  solid white fill.  Together, these have the significance of the colors of the Greek flag:

The interior of the circle has a red background.  In black one will find the name of the Hellenic Pammachon Alliance as well as the english initials on the bottom.  In addition, the tracing of the inner circle and the middle artwork is black. 

It is no coincidence that these colors represent the flag raised by Andreas Londos at the outbreak of the 1821 Revolution that led to the independence of Hellas.

It could be said that the Hellenic Pammachon Alliance program itself is revolutionary in its approach to Hellenic culture, Hellenic philosophy and science combined with the fusion and cohesion of the Hellenic Diaspora to revive a societal practice and platform in conjunction with the ΔΕΠ ( International Pammachon Union ) based in Hellas; which is recognized by the Hellenic Cultural Ministry.

In the interior, with black trace and white fill on the left, one will find figures that were pulled from ancient Greek pottery and digitally retraced.  These represent the fact that Hellenic martial sport and martial art has its documented roots in antiquity. To the right, one will find 3 youth holding staves. These were extracted from a picture of youth training in their elementary school in Thraki during the 1880's. 

Hence, shifting from left to right, one will see a transition from antiquity to the modern era; representing the passing on and alteration of traditions from one generation to the next over time.  The HPA is intending to revive the Hellenic societal practice that existed well into the 20th century (see pictorial evidence throughout this site) represented on the right in the Hellenic Diaspora.  This practice of "martial education", based on tradition and scholarship, made Hellas strong in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. 

In the middle of the logo is the column.  This represents the pillar of Hellenic culture and learning on which the HPA program of "martial education" is based.
