Aegean Blue

The Aegean Sea, a great bay of the Eastern Mediterranean situated between the Greek mainland to the west and Turkey to the east, lying north of Crete, is nothing less than the cradle of western culture.  The Aegean is the setting for the world of Odysseus as described in the Iliad and The Odyssey, Minoan culture in Crete, and the birthplace of western democracy as developed by the Hellenistic city-states.

As well as being culturally fascinating, the Aegean is also indescribably beautiful. Alternate bands of granite and limestone produce dazzling island landscapes.  Islands are dotted with characteristic white-cubed dwellings and blue-domed churches set in this azure sea. 

The history, culture, and color of the Aegean Sea gave rise to this inspired shade of blue.
