Flag of the Minister of National Defence - Image by Pete Loeser, 24 April 2021

The flag of the Minister of National Defence (photo, photo, photo) is blue with the ministry's emblem in the center.
The shield features the symbols of the Army (helmet), the Air Force (wings) and the Navy (anchor).

The motto, written in archaic script, reads ἀμύνεσθαι περὶ πάτρης, "To fight for one's country". It comes from Homer's Iliad, book 12, line 243, εἷς οἰωνὸς ἄριστος ἀμύνεσθαι περὶ πάτρης, "One omen is best, to fight for one's country".
This is the answer given by Hector to his friend Polydamas, who suggests the Trojans to stop the attack of the Greek rampart in the face of the omen of an eagle. Polydamas' warning was wise, since the assault turned to a disaster. Hector's answer and decision, was, however, considered by further scholars as a model of patriotic courage, therefore its use as the motto of the Hellenis Minister of National Defence.
