Flag of Kos

The new flag of the municipality of Kos was hoisted for the first time (photo) on 5 March 2012.
According to the Mayor the "shape" of the flag contains the letters "K" and "O", for Kos.The yellow colour stands for stability but also for rage for the situation we have come to, while the red colour stands for fighting spirit,liveliness and militant mood.
The emblem on the flag (image) is not a new one, dating back to the Italian occupation administration. The emblem contains a "staff of Asclepius"*, two snakes, for Asclepius and Hippocrates, and a bunch of grapes for the island's abundance of "goods".
I don't know if this flag will last long. The Mayor already talked about the possibility of changing the colours (the controversial element of the flag) but not the design.

*This is not a staff of Asclepius which has a single snake wrapped around a unadorned staff, but is rather a caduceus.
