Mediterranean, is the sea that connects three different continents. Greece, is the mother of the Mediterranean, the source of all Western Civilisation, the Arts, Democracy, Mythology, the Olympic Games, Science and more. Volos, is the home of the Gods, Mount Olympus. The place that brings together many historical celebrities, heroes and figures such as Achilles, Jason, Asclepius, Ajax, Theseus, Ennius and more. What connects all of the above personalities is their teacher, the Centaur Chiron.
A centaur is a half man, half horse. A symbolism of great coexistence between Man and Nature. A very strong and very different breed. Chiron is the Master.
The Mediterranean Games of Volos 2013 logo depicts and projects the values of ecological conscience, human strength and spirit. Greece's gloriously rich heritage of history and tradition leaves not many options on art directing such a project. Using mythological symbols and meanings, project an immortal greatness of no equal along to familiar and friendly concepts to all Hellenes and Mediterraneans.
