General History / Mythology

In 480 BC, the fleet of the Persian King Xerxes was damaged on the rocks off Skiathos while he was on his way to fight King Leonidas of Sparta and his 300 soldiers; Leonidas and his men later beat the Persians at Thermopylae. Over a thousand years later, in 1807, the first Greek flag was created and hung on the island’s Evangelistria monastery. Subsequently, many leaders of the Greek Independence war were sworn in at that very spot.
